SUMMIT COUNTY, Ohio — An Akron man will spend 15 years in prison after robbing two local fast food restaurants, throwing off articles of clothing as he fled with the money.

According to the Summit County Prosecutor’s Office, John Foster, 45, was sentenced Thursday.

On June 22, 2013, Foster robbed a Church’s Chicken at gunpoint. A corrections officer saw Foster running from the restaurant, taking off articles of clothing as he ran. He got into a car and fled.

Six days later, Foster robbed a Taco Bell at knife point wearing a lime green shirt. He again threw off articles of clothing as he ran from the restaurant.

Police found him a short time later on the porch of a home. He was still wearing the lime green shirt and was hiding money in his underwear.

Foster was found guilty of two counts of aggravated robbery and a firearm specification on Jan. 28.
