(WTOL) - A serial bank robber who robbed more than a dozen local banks will spend several more years behind bars.

Michael McPartland of Swanton is already serving six years for robbing nine banks across northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan.

A tip from a family member led authorities to McPartland.

McPartland was arrested in April after a high-speed chase. He told the court he robbed the banks to feed his addiction to prescription drugs.

On Tuesday, January 13, a judge sentenced him to three more years in prison for felonious assault.

The assault had to do with the suspect ramming his car into police cruisers during the chase that led to his arrest.
