Print More

The getaway driver in several convenience store robberies in which the robber wore a hooded sweat shirt backward has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Twenty-seven-year-old Christopher Adams, of Burlington, has pleaded guilty to participating in the robberies in Colchester and Jericho last January.

Police say he drove Matthew Maskell, the so-called "backward bandit,” to and from the crime scenes.

Adams has been in jail since his arrest in early June.

Earlier this month Maskell admitted to his part in robberies in Colchester, Hinesburg and Richmond as a part of a plea deal. Two other co-conspirators, also have pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentencing.
