TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Missouri man has been convicted of robbing three banks in northeastern Kansas and trying to hold up one of them a second time.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 55-year-old Charles Shaw, of Kansas City, Mo., was found guilty Friday following a jury trial in Topeka. He faces sentencing in February.

Shaw was convicted in the armed robbery of the Main Street Credit Union in Leavenworth on Nov. 24, 2010, and a holdup at Citizens National Bank, also in Leavenworth, on Feb. 14, 2011.

He was also found guilty of committing armed robbery at the Educational Credit Union in Topeka on Dec. 30, 2011, and of trying to rob the same institution six weeks later.

Shaw was acquitted of robbing another Topeka bank in October 2010.
