WASHINGTON (AP) - Prosecutors say four siblings have been sentenced to prison for robbing a convenience store and a bank within 36 hours.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says the siblings, all from Washington, were sentenced Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Alex Alexander, Alvin Alexander and Allante Alexander pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy to interfere with interstate commerce by robbery and bank robbery. Alex and Allante Alexander got 3 years while their brother got 3 ½ years. Their sister, Allesha Alexander, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to interfere with interstate commerce by robbery and acting as an accessory to bank robbery. She was sentenced to 20 months in prison.

The group was charged with robbing an Exxon gas station in Maryland on May 14 and a District of Columbia bank a day later.
