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.

Andrew Maberry, 19, of O’Fallon, Ill., was sentenced Friday.

Federal prosecutors say Maberry robbed 10 banks in Illinois, Missouri,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.
