A 17-year-old Walterboro man was sentenced Monday to eight years in prison for robbing a Beaufort-area pizza deliverer.
Leonard Colleton pleaded guilty Monday to strong-arm robbery in connection with the Jan. 8 robbing of a Domino's driver as he made a stop on Capeheart Circle in Burton. During the holdup, Colleton and two unidentified suspects stole pizza, chicken wings, a cellphone and $18, according to a news release from the 14th Judicial Circuit Solicitor's Office.
A Beaufort County Sheriff's Office investigator identified Colleton as a suspect by searching phone records. The driver picked him out of a photo lineup and described Colleton as the suspect who pointed the gun, now believed to be a BB gun.
The case was prosecuted by assistant solicitor Casey Rankin. Judge Michael G. Nettles issued the sentence.
