'I-55 Bandit' Bank Robber Gets 5 Years in 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.
