LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man charged in three bank robberies in the state between 2016 and last year has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Authorities say 59-year-old Mark Lunsford, of Hamilton, was sentenced Monday in Warren County Common Pleas Court in Lebanon on three felony robbery charges.

He also must pay back nearly $14,000 that authorities said was stolen in the robberies of Peoples Bank locations in Franklin, Springboro and Carlisle.

Authorities said they eventually found Lunsford after locating the vehicle used in the robberies. A message seeking comment was left for his attorney.
