DuPage County's "Beauty Salon Bandit," accused of "terrorizing" small salon businesses throughout the county, has been sentenced to 14 years in prison.

Jason Logsdon, 42, was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to four counts of armed robbery for robbing four DuPage County businesses in late 2012 and early 2013.

In each of the DuPage robberies Logsdon, wearing a disguise, entered the business, pointed a pellet gun at a clerk and demanded money. After getting cash from the clerk, he fled on foot.

The DuPage armed robberies were reported:

• at 9:55 a.m. Dec. 26, 2012, at Smokers Best along York Road in Bensenville.

• at 6:11 p.m. Dec. 27, 2012, at Sport Clips along Roosevelt Road in Lombard.

• at 10:42 a.m. Jan. 2, 2013, at Hair Cuttery along Roosevelt Road in Lombard.

• at 10:50 a.m. Jan. 3, 2013, at Great Clips along Roosevelt Road in Glen Ellyn.

In each of the cases, store personnel immediately contacted their police department following the robbery. A joint investigation conducted by numerous law enforcement agencies from throughout the Chicagoland area led to Logsdon's arrest on Feb. 4, 2013.

"For several months, Mr. Logsdon terrorized small businesses throughout DuPage and Cook counties," DuPage State's Attorney Robert Berlin said in a written statement. "His arrest and successful prosecution is a perfect example of law enforcement agencies working together to hold responsible those who commit crimes in multiple jurisdictions."

Logsdon currently is serving a 14-year sentence for similar robberies committed in Cook County. His 14-year sentence in DuPage County will be served concurrently with his Cook County sentence.

Logsdon will be required to serve half of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
