The vehicle contained the same clothing Lunsford wore during the robberies and a note similar to the ones given to the tellers, according to the release. Lunsford was located in Indiana and extradited back to Ohio to face these charges.
In addition to the prison sentence, Lunsford was ordered to pay back $13,942 in restitution to Peoples Bank.
“This investigation is a prime example of the ongoing collaboration we see on a regular basis from our local law enforcement agencies,” Warren County Prosecutor David P. Fornshell said in the release. “Because of that collaboration, the identity of the robber was ultimately ascertained, and we were able to hold Lunsford accountable for these robberies.”
