NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - A man involved in two bank robberies in Newark is now headed to prison.

Federal prosecutors say Peter Greer received an 87-month sentence Wednesday. He also must pay more than $18,000 in restitution and will have to serve three years of supervised release once he’s freed.

The 41-year-old New Brunswick man had pleaded guilty to two counts of bank robbery.

Prosecutors say Greer entered a Valley National Bank branch in September 2012 and gave a teller a note that said “give me the money in hundred dollar bills.” He then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Greer attempted to rob a Sovereign Bank branch the next month, giving a teller a note that said “I have a gun, give me money.” But he fled without any money when the teller didn’t comply with his demand.
