DUBLIN, GA: NOEL ARNOLD, 35, JIMMY LEE MCBRIDE, 25, and BRITTANY RINER, 25, all from Blackshear, Georgia, were sentenced to lengthy prison terms yesterday in federal district court for the armed bank robbery of the Citizens Bank & Trust (CB&T) that occurred in Chauncey, Georgia on September 2, 2010.
