BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) -- A Pawhuska man is being sentenced to 20 years in prison for robbing the Tom Mix Museum in Dewey.

Daniel Ray Dean was sentenced after pleading guilty to a second-degree burglary charge.

Police say Dean and another man stole 12 antique guns in April 2002 from the museum that honors the early-day cowboy movie star. Five of the guns have been recovered.

Museum officials sent several rifles to the Oklahoma Historical Society shortly after the burglary for safekeeping.
