PHOENIX — One of three men accused in a string of fast-food restaurant
robberies in the Phoenix metropolitan area has been sentenced to four years in
Maricopa County prosecutors say Christopher Kimball was sentenced Wednesday to
three concurrent 4-year prison terms. He pleaded guilty to four counts of armed
robbery in September.
Prosecutors say Kimball will be sentenced on the remaining armed robbery count
after the trial of a co-defendant is completed this spring.
They say Kimball and two other Phoenix men were dubbed the “Fast Food
Bandits” after seven known robberies of fast-food restaurants between September
and November 2011.
The three suspects were arrested in January.
Authorities accused Kimball of being involved in two of the robberies. The
third suspect already has pleaded guilty to three counts of armed robbery.
