MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - A man convicted of robbing 10 banks in southeast Wisconsin has been sentenced to almost five-and-a-half years in a federal prison.

37-year-old Michael Scott of Beaver Dam had pleaded guilty to a 10-count federal robbery indictment.

Authorities said Scott normally wore sunglasses and a baseball cap when he passed notes to tellers demanding cash – and not to press their alarms.

Federal Judge J.P. Stadtmueller said the tellers suffered trauma that was quote, “profound and long-lasting.”

The robberies occurred between April 23rd and July 13th at banks in Kenosha, Delafield, Oconomowoc, Richfield, Hartford, Fond du Lac, Westfield, West Bend, and Germantown.

Scott was arrested at a gas station in Milwaukee soon after the final bank hold-up at Germantown.
