A Jupiter man who had pleaded guilty to committing a string of bank robberies in Palm Beach and Martin Counties in 2017 and 2018 has been sentenced.

Ronnie Montsdeoca, 59, received a 20-year prison term, according to the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida.

According to a court record, Montsdeoca robbed a TD Bank in Jupiter on April 21, 2017, a Wells Fargo Bank in West Palm Beach on August 27, 2018, and another TD Bank in Stuart on September 10, 2018. Montsdeoca also attempted to rob a Bank United in Hobe Sound shortly before the TD Bank robbery on September 10, 2018.

After his prison sentence, Montsdeoca must serve three years of supervised release and pay $37,000 in restitution, officials said.

The investigation included participation from the FBI, Martin County Sheriff's Office, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, and the Jupiter Police Department.
