A former Army Reservist pleads guilty to stealing guns, escaping from prison, and two attempted bank robberies.
James Morales submitted his plea to a federal court in Massachusetts on Monday.
The 36-year-old reportedly stole several military weapons from an Army Reserve center in November of 2015.
He was apprehended in New York after spending several days on-the-run, but escaped from prison a year later.
Morales was re-captured days later while attempting to rob two different banks.
He is due for sentencing in February, and could serve up to 90 years in prison.
