ST. LOUIS (AP) - A teenage serial bank robber the FBI dubbed the "I-55 Bandit" for a series of crimes in five states has been ordered to spend five years in federal prison.
 
Nineteen-year-old Andrew Maberry of O'Fallon, Ill., was sentenced Friday in St. Louis.
 
Maberry pleaded guilty in December to one of the robberies - a heist in July of last year involving a bank in Arnold, Mo., just south of St. Louis.
 
Federal prosecutors say Maberry robbed 10 banks in Missouri, Illinois, West Virginia, Tennessee and Maryland from May of last year to the end of August.
 
Some of the early robberies in Missouri and Illinois were near Interstate 55, prompting the nickname.
 
The FBI says that in each holdup, Maberry didn't show a weapon, and no one was harmed.

Man arrested in O'Fallon, Ill. bank heist

   O'FALLON, Ill. (AP) - A man suspected of robbing a southwestern Illinois bank is jailed pending charges, as authorities try to figure out whether he may have been involved in holdups in other states.

   Investigators say the man was arrested Tuesday near a Swansea cornfield after they found a car matching the description of a vehicle that had been used two hours earlier to rob the Bank of O'Fallon.

   The search for the man involved dozens of law enforcers and an Illinois State Police airplane.

   Authorities say the man entered the bank, implied he had a weapon and demanded money from a teller before running away.

   O'Fallon interim police chief Jeff Wild says the man may be responsible for other bank robberies outside Illinois. 

   There's no immediate word on charges. The FBI is investigating.

Bank robber sentenced to life in prison

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 40-year-old man with a history of robbing banks in Kansas and Missouri has been sentenced to life in prison for two holdups he was convicted of committing last year.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Eddie Prince Roberts of Columbia, Missouri won't be eligible for parole under the sentence he received Friday in federal court.

Roberts was convicted earlier of robbing Boone County National Bank in Columbia of more than $4,400 in April 2012, and Landmark Bank in Columbia of roughly $8,200 the following month.

He was arrested after the Landmark robbery following a foot chase in which he fought with an officer and was shot during the encounter.

Roberts was convicted in 1993 of robbing five banks in Kansas. He was also convicted of robbing a Missouri bank in 2000.
