(WUSA9) -- A man responsible for a crime wave from Anne Arundel County to Alexandria was sentenced Thursday to 35 years in prison.

Byron Deshane Govan, 28, of Charles County, pleaded guilty on September 3 to armed carjacking and robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Police say Govan robbed a Rite Aid in Anne Arundel County, used stolen credit cards at a Little Caesar's Pizza place in Prince George's County and carjacked two sets of victims in Montgomery County.

"Byron Govan is a one man crime spree," said Ramon Korionoff, spokesman for the Maryland State Attorney's Office.

Officials said Govan used vehicles he stole in carjackings to bounce from one armed robbery to the next. He set one of his stolen cars on fire in an attempt to torch evidence of his crimes.

"Sometimes criminals get emboldened at getting victims to hand over their cars, hand over their belongings," added Korionoff.

Govan also allegedly robbed a Dunkin' Donuts with a gun in Alexandria, officials said.
