One of the four men accused of robbing the ATM Solutions office in St. Louis has been sentenced to 32 years in prison.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 36-year-old John Wesley Jones was sentenced Thursday in federal court in connection with the $6.6 million robbery last summer, one of the biggest ever in St. Louis.

Jones was the first of the suspects arrested. He broke out of the Lincoln County jail on Nov. 15 while awaiting trial, and was captured two days later.

Another robber, 32-year-old Ryechine Money, has pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing. A third, 20-year-old Larry Newman, has pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.

Authorities say they know the identity of the fourth suspect, and he is being sought.
