      A third person has been sentenced for his role in two Southwest Georgia bank robberies.

      According to information released by the office of the United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia, 45-year-old Recco Collins has been sentenced to nearly 18 years in federal prison for armed bank robberies and restitution for damaged property.

      Collins admitted as part of his plea agreement that in February of 2013, he drove a getaway vehicle during the robbery of PeoplesSouth Bank in Donalsonville and the Trust Bank in Adel.

      U.S. Attorney Michael Moore said, "Collins provided the getaway ride for two violent criminals and, while doing so, he put human lives and property in jeopardy. He has well-earned his lengthy stay."

      Co-defendants Tony Key and Anthony Facon were sentenced earlier in February for their part in the robbery.
