A retired police sergeant has pleaded guilty to robbing two banks in holdups that earned him the nickname "The Grandpa Bandit."
Sixty-two-year-old Frank Holder of Phelan entered pleas to federal charges in Riverside and is free on bond.
A federal prosecutor said Wednesday Holder is expected to get a three-year sentence and must repay about $4,000.
Holder worked for the Pomona Police Department for 30 years and retired in 2004. He had no prior criminal record.
He pleaded guilty to robbing the banks in Southern California last October. Authorities say he had a gun during the holdups but never displayed it.
