WORCESTER, MASS. >> A serial bank robber from Worcester has been sentenced to up to 10 years in state prison after pleading guilty to robbing eight area banks in a three-month period in 2014.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that Prince Dennis pleading guilty Thursday in Worcester Superior Court to four counts each of armed robbery and unarmed robbery.

Prosecutors say in each robbery the 37-year-old Dennis handed a teller a computer-generated note demanding money. In some cases, the note indicated the robber had a gun or a bomb.

The robberies netted Dennis about $10,000 combined.

The robbery spree started in March 2014 and ended in late May 2014 when police staked out several banks, saw Dennis come out of a People's United Bank branch and arrested him.
