CANTON TWP., Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – An East Sparta man will do nine years in prison for robbing a Canton Township bank early this year.

The US Attorney’s Office in Cleveland says 54-year-old Ronald Holt held up the Key Bank branch in the 3000 block of Cleveland Avenue SW.

He made off with $8100, which he must pay back.

Earlier that same January day, he walked away from the Stark County Community Corrections Center without permission.
