LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas man will be serving seven life sentences after pleading guilty to robbery charges in Gregg County.

Robbie Bryan Stevens pleaded guilty to four counts of aggravated robbery, and received four life sentences to be added to the three he already had received from charges in Upshur County.

Stevens had been charged with the armed robbery of the China King in Longview in December 2013, and was also charged with evading arrest.

He was charged with another robbery of the Dollar General store in Diana where authorities say he also assaulted an employee. He also pleaded guilty to those charges.

Stevens was captured in January in Tyler after several law enforcement agencies teamed up to find him.

The sentences are to be served concurrently.
