A 62-year-old man has been convicted of three bank robberies committed in Sacramento County in 2011.
A jury on Thursday also found true that Ralph Stewart had previous bank robbery convictions for robberies in the Bay Area between 1993 and 2003, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney's Office news release.
The Sacramento County robberies occurred at U.S. Bank locations in Citrus Heights and Rancho Cordova during June and July of 2011. In each instance, Stewart entered the bank, waited in line, demanded money from the tellers, then left on foot, officials said. He was recognized and apprehended by law enforcement officers during an unrelated contact weeks later.
Stewart is to be sentenced July 5.
