HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man who robbed a post office and a bank in the same day will spend at least seven and a half years in prison.

The New Haven Register reports that 26-year-old Malcolm Haynes pleaded guilty to one count of armed robbery of a postal employee and one count of armed bank robbery in February. Haynes was sentenced Wednesday.

Police say Haynes, who was armed with a rifle, and three other men robbed a post office in West Haven on the morning of April 12, 2016 for $491.

The group then robbed a Wells Fargo Bank in Hamden later that afternoon for almost $10,000.

The other three men have all been charged. Two have pleaded guilty.
