A La Porte County man will spend 15 years in prison for a crime spree he took part in.

Timothy Bennitt, 27, was sentenced in federal court Thursday for robbery and brandishing a gun during a crime of violence.

Nathan Kellogg pleaded guilty to taking part in several of those crimes.

Court documents show Bennitt committed six armed robberies in St. Joseph and La Porte counties back in January.

Police say he robbed restaurants and businesses. Police say the men used the money for food, drugs and lodging.
