A federal judge sentenced serial robber James Linwood Jones to 22 years in prison on Friday after he wreaked havoc on banks, hotels and a post office last summer.
Jones admitted to an armed robbery spree that stretched from Kingston Springs to Goodlettsville in May and June. He threatened employees with a gun or a device designed to resemble an explosive.
U.S. District Judge William J. Haynes Jr. heard the pleading Friday. In addition to serving 22 years behind bars, Jones also agreed to make restitution to the businesses he robbed.
The FBI, the United States Postal Inspection Service and the Metro Nashville Police Department conducted the investigation.
Police arrested Jones on June 30, and he has been held without bond since.
