PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A 26-year-old convicted bank robber from Maine has admitted to robbing four additional banks last year in federal court in Portland.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1NCk739 ) Jimmy Odong pleaded guilty on Wednesday to robbing four more banks in the Portland area in 2015.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Odong stole cash from University Credit Union on May 14, TruChoice Federal Credit Union on May 26 and both CPort Credit Union and Bank of America on June 19.

In each of the robberies, Odong wore a hat or wig as a disguise and brandished a semi-automatic handgun to obtain money from the tellers.

Odong faces up to 14 years in federal prison as outlined by a plea agreement with prosecutors. He will be sentenced on July 12.
