A man police dubbed the Bicycle Bandit has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for committing eight bank robberies in southern New Jersey and Delaware.

Forty-nine-year-old Brian Layton also was ordered Thursday to serve three years of supervised release after he's freed from prison and pay more than $40,000 in restitution to the banks. He pleaded guilty in February.

The East Greenwich Township man was arrested in September 2009 while trying to flee from a New Jersey state trooper on the Garden State Parkway. Police say Layton dropped a backpack containing cash from a robbery.

Prosecutors say the arrest ended a yearlong spree in which he robbed seven banks in New Jersey and one in Delaware.

Each time, he rode away on a bicycle.
