Man convicted in multiple Indiana bank robberies

Man to be sentenced later this month

LEBANON, Ind. - A man was convicted last week of multiple felony counts related to four bank robberies in Boone County beginning seven years ago.

John Study, 50, of Zionsville, was convicted of four counts of armed robbery, six counts of criminal confinement, resisting law enforcement, auto theft and being a habitual offender.

The bank robberies happened in 2006 and 2007 at banks in Zionsville and Dover.

"These convictions were a direct result of a complete team effort amongst law enforcement -- the Boone County Sheriff, Zionsville Police Department, Thorntown Police Department and several other agencies outside of Boone County," said Boone County Prosecutor Todd Meyer in a statement. " I cannot sufficiently express my gratitude to the victims and witnesses involved in these cases for their cooperation in the investigations and subsequent trial."

In 2007, investigators described Study's robberies as well-rehearsed.

Study had previously been convicted in bank robbery in the 1980s.
