BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont man has pleaded guilty to committing six bank robberies and other crimes in Vermont and New Hampshire last year.

Matthew Martin from the Springfield area will be sentenced to 15 years in prison.

Prosecutors said Thursday that Martin committed armed robberies of a People’s United Bank in Brattleboro and the Heritage Family Credit Union in Ludlow in December of 2015 while using a BB gun.

Police say Martin surrendered on outstanding arrest warrants. He was charged with committing armed robberies of a Mascoma Savings Bank in Charlestown, New Hampshire; a TD Bank North in Loudon, New Hampshire; and a gas station in Ludlow; as well as robberies of the Windsor County South Credit Union and a Citizens Bank in Springfield and a pharmacy in Bellows Falls.
