BALTIMORE (AP) — A Gaithersburg man has pleaded guilty to robbing four Chipotle restaurants at gunpoint.
Twenty-six-year-old Lamont Bonds entered the pleas Thursday in federal court in Baltimore. He faces a maximum of 20 years in prison at sentencing Nov. 24.
According to his plea agreement, Bonds and his girlfriend plotted to rob the Chipotle in Mount Airy, where the girlfriend had worked as manager.
Prosecutors say on July 22, 2012, Bonds entered the Mount Airy Chipotle brandishing a shotgun and forced the manager to open the safe.
Authorities say Bonds robbed Chipotle restaurants in Hagerstown, Gaithersburg and Damascus between August and November. Prosecutors say Bonds’ girlfriend drove him to two of the robberies.
The girlfriend, Marvel Alegria, has pleaded guilty to her role in the robberies and will be sentenced Sept. 23.
