Waltham man sentenced for three bank robberies

WALTHAM

George A. Sarro, III, 34, of Waltham, was sentenced yesterday to five years and three months in prison after robbing three banks in the Boston area, the U.S. Attorney's office announced today.

Over a span of eleven days in September of last year, Sarro robbed a Citizens Bank in Waltham, a Sovereign Bank in Saugus and an East Boston Savings Bank. He was ordered by a judge to pay $7,976 in restitution to the banks.

His prison sentence will be followed by three years of supervised release, prosecutors said.
