LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man who told authorities he wanted only to be “running the streets and getting high” will spend decades in prison for an armed robbery string.

Twenty-three-year-old Andrew David Westry, of Lancaster, will serve 28 to 64 years in prison for the 2014 string of heists in Lancaster and five surrounding communities.

Prosecutors say he held up retail stores and fast food restaurants, sometimes in partnership with others.

Assistant District Attorney Julie Slabinski asked for a stiff sentence saying Westry had told probation officials he was only interested in “running the streets and getting high.”

He was sentenced Friday.
