Ryan Adam, 35, was arrested on Aug. 19, 2013, by Red Deer City RCMP investigating allegations that a man armed with a tire iron had robbed three different liquor stores in Red Deer on consecutive days, starting on Aug. 13, 2013.

In a statement released after his arrest, Red Deer RCMP alleged that Adam was also facing charges for three similar robberies in Edmonton.

Adam pleaded guilty in Edmonton provincial court on Monday to three counts of robbery and was given a global sentence of eight years, minus credit for one year and seven months.
