    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia man has admitted to leaving a casino to rob a bank before returning to continue gambling.

    The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports 52-year-old Kerry Johnson of Charleston pleaded guilty Wednesday to a robbery charge.

    Johnson had been at the Mardi Gras Casino in Nitro for hours Aug. 2 when he put down a $25 chip to hold his spot. Prosecutors said Johnson then drove 13 miles to a Charleston bank and gave tellers a note saying he had a bomb and a weapon and robbed it.

    Johnson then returned to the blackjack table and kept gambling.

    Johnson told a judge he'd taken quite a few drugs that day, but recognized himself after seeing video from the bank.

    He faces five to 18 years in prison when sentenced in March.
