(KSL News) A man accused of planning to rob a credit union and then get away by floating down the Provo River was sentenced to 27 months in prison.

At the sentencing, the judge said Patrick Burr's history of substance abuse led to the far-fetched getaway plan, a plan the judge said was "not a well-thought-out deal."

Burr and his wife were planning to rob the credit union then float away on inner tubes. But they were arrested the day before the heist.

Burr pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to commit bank robbery. His wife also pleaded guilty. She will be sentenced next week.
