ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) -- A would-be casino robber foiled by his own cologne has received seven years behind bars.

Jerold Nissen of Aberdeen wore a Halloween mask as he entered the casino Nov. 4 with a loaded gun, said Ken Varns, assistant Brown County state's attorney.  When Nissen announced the robbery, a casino clerk recognized his cologne as that of a regular patron and addressed Nissen by name.

"She told him to take the mask off, that it wasn't funny," Varns said. "He put the gun away, took the mask off, sat down at a machine and played lottery for a few minutes."

The robbery attempt was reported the next day, when casino officials noticed phone lines had been cut. A search of Nissen's truck turned up the mask, gun and wire clippers, Varns said.

Nissen pleaded guilty to attempted robbery Friday in exchange for the seven-year sentence. The charge carries a maximum sentence of 12 1/2 years.
