An Upstate man arrested after an armed robbery spree is facing prison time.

Lamarcus D. Thompson, 25, pleaded guilty to charges in connection with a string of hold-ups at convenience stores in Spartanburg County. In all the incidents, Thompson was armed with a handgun and has his facecovered wit a bandanna.

Thompson was arrested in February 2017 after he tried to cash in some of the lottery tickets he stole. A fingerprint lifted from one of the tickets led to a break in the case.

Thompson was sentenced to 20 years in prison Thursday for four counts of armed robbery, four counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime and six counts of defrauding the lottery.
