A 26-year-old Alabaster man will spend the next 32 years in jail after he pleaded guilty to a string of armed robberies in five different states.

The sentence came about three months after Robert Cameron Foust pleaded guilty to robberies in Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Kansas in federal court. Foust faced up to life in prison for the crimes.

The crimes took place between Aug. 21-26, 2009, and included robberies at Movie Gallery stores in Calera, Warrior, Conway, Ark. and Roland, Ok. He also confessed to robbing a Nashville convenience store, a Valero Market in Jackson, Tenn., and a Little Caesar’s Pizza in Newton, Kan.

Foust previously told the court he committed the crimes when he began using cocaine shortly after he was released from the Alabama Department of Corrections.
