Four defendants were sentenced and one pleaded guilty before Logan County Common Pleas Court Judge Mark O'Connor earlier this week.
Christopher Yaeger (pictured), 35, of Bellefontaine, pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery and was sentenced to 43 months in prison to be served consecutively with a recent sentence in Shelby County.
After accepting a plea deal, he faced a maximum sentence of six years in Logan County.
On December 9th, Yaeger robbed the Huntington Bank, 201 East Columbus Avenue, and broke into his sister's (Ashley Savage) 850 East Sandusky Avenue residence.
Yaeger reportedly entered the bank shortly after eleven a.m., waited in line, and then gave a female teller a note stating he would hurt somebody if she did not give him cash.
Although no weapon was observed, the teller complied and gave him an undisclosed amount of cash.
He fled on foot and remained at large for seven weeks.
On November 4th, Yaeger allegedly robbed the Dollar General Store at 884 East Sandusky Avenue in Bellefontaine.
