(DETROIT) -- A Detroit man was sentenced to 124 years in prison on Thursday for robbing Verizon and Radio Shack stores and terrorizing the employees.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Frank Richardson Jr., 39, was found guilty on 10 counts of robbery and firearms offenses.
In 2010, Richardson Jr. reportedly led a group of seven people who stole cell phones from various Verizon and Radio Shack stores in Detroit and Eastpointe. The group would also reportedly force employees into storage rooms at gunpoint.
The Free Press reports that the group then sold the phones online on eBay, costing the stores over $80,000 in losses.
