EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- Three suspects arrested in the armed robberies of three gas stations and a bank are now charged.

The criminal complaint says Kyle Langner and Ricky White are now facing three charges of armed robbery. Jesse Sweeter is facing two armed robbery charges.

The complaint says police arrested Sweeter for robbing the Sterling Bank in Rice Lake last Wednesday. Investigators say during an interview with Sweeter, he admitted he and the other two men were also responsible for the robberies at the Holiday gas stations.

Each armed robbery charge carries a maximum of 40 years in prison, and a $100,000 fine.
