Bank Robbery Spree

A North Carolina man and his girlfriend have pleaded guilty to a bank robbery spree across Alabama last March.

Court documents show the duo -- Jerry Hover Tinsley of Rutherfordton, N.C., and Rhianna Marie Jones, of California -- admitted last week to robbing banks in Flomaton, Florala and East Brewton.

Prosecutors have offered Jones a lesser sentence if she helps police with the case.

Tinsley's attorney, Christ Coumanis, described his client as a "Bonnie-and-Clyde-type couple" with drug problems.

Police say the couple stole about $9,500 from the banks total between March 4 and March 17.
