SEATTLE (AP) - A convicted bank robber who spent nearly five years on the run before his capture last summer has been sentenced to 12 years in prison in a federal court in Seattle.

Bradley Robinett was arrested last summer in the Portland suburb of Hillsboro. The 46-year-old pleaded guilty to escape and other charges in January. He was sentenced Monday.

Federal prosecutors say that as part of his plea deal, he told authorities of three locations in Washington and Oregon where he stashed dozens of stolen firearms and other stolen items.

Robinett was convicted of bank robbery in 2004 and was sentenced to seven years in prison. In 2009 he was released to a Seattle halfway house but fled.

He managed to elude police in Washington in 2009, including fleeing after a high-speed chase on Bainbridge Island.
