A career bank robber will spend seven years and three months in prison for robbing the Citizens Bank branch inside the Giant Eagle in Moon, a federal judge ruled Monday.

Christopher Lyons, 32, was convicted and sentenced to the same prison term in 2003 for a string of robberies that led investigators to dub him the “Main Street Robber” because he was robbing banks located on Main Street in various communities.

Lyons pleaded guilty last November to the Nov. 6, 2011, robbery where he wore a fake beard, glasses and blue bandana.

U.S. District Judge Cathy Bissoon on Monday also sentenced Lyons to three years of probation and ordered him to pay $520 in restitution to the bank.
