An Ohio man responsible for a string of gas station robberies is headed to prison.    

The Meigs County Prosecutors Office says a judge sentenced 26-year-old Alex Craig to 30 years in prison.

As part of a plea deal, Craig admitted he robbed the TNT Pitstop in Syracuse on March 30, the TNT Pitstop in Chester on April 2, and the 124 Mart near Pomeroy on April 10.

Investigators believe Craig was also involved in robberies in Mason and Millwood, W.Va., but he has not been charged in those cases.

Craig's sister Marcy Craig is also charged with three counts of aggravated robbery in connection with the case.

She is scheduled to go on trial in January.
