Federal prosecutors say 23-year-old Quam Wilson of Neptune pleaded guilty Monday to robbery and weapons charges. He also admitted committing other robberies, which will be considered when he's sentenced Sept. 3.

Wilson's crime spree in November 2012 began when he shot and robbed a taxi driver in Asbury Park, then robbed a gas station attendant in neighboring Ocean Township. A few hours later, Wilson went to several area banks and tried to withdraw money from the driver's account.

Prosecutors say the crime spree also involved robberies at a series of Monmouth County businesses, including a taxi stand and a convenience store.
