TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man who admitted robbing five banks and attempting to rob another during a monthlong spree two years ago has been sentenced to nearly eight years in federal prison.

Quentin Morales also must pay $9,217 in restitution under the 92-month sentence imposed Tuesday.

Federal prosecutors say the 27-year-old Passaic man robbed banks in Kearny, Kenilworth, Linden, Clifton and Union, and attempted to rob one in Elizabeth between June and July 2016. All the robberies took place at Wells Fargo bank branches, while the attempted robbery occurred at a Capital One branch.

Morales was arrested in August 2016. He had been on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for bank robbers at the time.

He had pleaded guilty to the robberies in February.
