CONCORD, (AP) — A New Hampshire man has pleaded guilty to robbing three banks in 2013 in Claremont and Lebanon.

The U.S. Attorney's office said in each robbery, 31-year-old James Oberfeldt wore a dark face mask and carried an air pistol that appeared to be an automated handgun.

He was identified after being arrested in Massachusetts in December 2013 on a traffic stop. Police said they found an air pistol, dark ski mask in his car.

The banks robbed were the One Credit Union and Claremont Savings Bank in Claremont, and the Lake Sunapee Bank in Lebanon.

Oberfeldt faces a maximum prison term of 20 years on each count and is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 5.
