DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A former longtime detective has been sentenced to 9½ years in prison for robbing an eastern Ohio bank and triggering the evacuation of several downtown Cambridge blocks by telling police he had an explosive device.
David Hirst pleaded guilty last month to aggravated robbery, grand theft, kidnapping, inducing panic and weapons charges.
The 50-year-old worked for Dayton police for 25 years, many of them as a fraud detective, before retiring in November 2011.
Hirst robbed $60,000 from the bank on Nov. 1 after handing a note to a teller. An explosive device Hirst told police that he had turned out to be a fake.
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/10rnmA4) that at his sentencing on Friday, Hirst said he had not been himself and was experiencing difficulties since retiring.
