**Correction: An earlier version of this article stated Jacob Savickas had taken the plea deal. That was not accurate. He was offered the deal, but as of Tuesday had not pleaded guilty to anything.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A man suspected of committing a string of robberies in two states has been offered a plea agreement.

If he accepts the deal, Jacob Savickas will have to plead guilty to a bank robbery charge as a third-time offender and two other felony cases. In exchange, prosecutors will dismiss all the other charges he faces in Kent County. Additionally, federal authorities agreed not to pursue charges for the bank robbery.

Savickas, 33, of Howard City is suspected in a slew of robberies stretching from Cedar Springs to northern Indiana, all of which happened over the course of eight days. The bank robbery involved in the plea deal happened on the last day of the crime spree, Aug. 2, at the Independent Bank Branch on Plainfield Avenue NE. A week later, Savickas was arrested at a metro Grand Rapids hotel.

Word of the plea deal came Tuesday, the same day Savickas waived a probable cause and preliminary exam.

He will remain behind bars on a $200,000 bond.
