A Topeka man pleaded guilty Monday to his role in an armed robbery that police discovered quickly because he was on probation and wearing a GPS monitor.

Christopher Allen Bush, 26, pleaded guilty to a federal charge of aiding and abetting a commercial robbery.

Bush admitted that he picked up another man after the robbery of a Casey’s General Store in Topeka.

Because Bush was wearing the GPS device as part of his parole in another case, Topeka police found him and his co-defendant a short time after the robbery.

Attorneys agreed to recommend a three-year prison sentence for Bush.
