TOPEKA, Kan. -

A Colorado man who wore pajama pants while robbing a Kansas bank has been sentenced to two years in federal prison.

The U.S. Attorney's office says a judge in Topeka sentenced 38-year-old Matthew W. Headley on Monday.
    
Headley, of Canon City, Colorado, pleaded guilty earlier to entering a US Bank branch in Lawrence last September and handing over a note demanding money.
    
Lawrence police found him at a nearby convenience store, still wearing the pajama pants and golf hat, but did not have enough evidence at the time to arrest him. He was arrested the next day driving west on Interstate 70 in northwestern Kansas.
    
Headley formerly lived in Lawrence. He pleaded guilty in 1998 to robbing two Lawrence businesses and was released from federal prison in 2007.
