RAPID CITY (AP) -- A man accused of trying to rob two Rapid City convenience stores on the same day has been ordered to serve four years in prison.

Authorities say 26-year-old Robert White Plume Janis used an unloaded BB gun to rob one store of $240 and to try to rob a second store on Jan. 13. He was arrested after a police chase in Nebraska five days later.

Janis pleaded guilty last month to attempted robbery, and prosecutors dropped a separate robbery count. His sentence requires him to get treatment for alcohol addiction and medication for bipolar disorder.
