PHOENIX -- A Phoenix man has been sentenced to two years in prison for trying to rob a casino on the Gila River Indian Community.

Federal prosecutors say 26-year-old Darvon Hibbler pleaded guilty last December to conspiring to commit a robbery and theft.

He was the last of four suspects to be sentenced in the attempted robbery of the Vee Quiva Casino last May 31.

Authorities say Hibbler went up to the teller at the cashier's cage and demanded money.

Hibbler reportedly reached into his waistband as though he had a gun.

However, another teller saw what was happening and called for security. Hibbler and a co-defendant left the casino without any money.

Two other people were charged with knowing about the robbery plan and helping Hibbler and the other man escape.
