CONCORD, N.H. — A man has been sentenced in New Hampshire to 10 years in federal prison after committing three bank robberies and attempting to rob a fourth one.

Prosecutors said 41-year-old Michael Giles robbed two TD Bank branches in Manchester in November. He was arrested near one of the banks on Nov. 27 when his motor scooter failed to start.

The arrest led police to link Giles to three two bank robberies and an attempted bank robbery last year in Hooksett and Manchester.
