Underground music store jacker gets five years

In other court news, today twenty-two year old Jarett Crawford was found guilty of two counts of robbery. Magistrate Dorothy Flowers sentenced Crawford to five years for each count with the stipulation that the sentences run concurrently. On December twentieth, Crawford entered the Underground Music Store on Barrack Road and quickly put up a sign to say that the store was closed. He then pulled out a chrome color pistol and pointed it at the Manager, Annie Chan. In the store at the time was employee Daniel Zaldivar along with Zaldivar’s brother, Armin, and Edgar Lopez. Crawford forced all of them to stand in a circle and proceeded rob them. Chan told the Court that Crawford stole from her five hundred and thirty dollars, a gold chain, and a Motorola cell. Armin testified that Crawford relieved him of ninety dollars, his Nokia cell phone, and a bicycle. Because Daniel and Lopez did not testify, one count of robbery was withdrawn. As for Crawford, he gave a statement from the dock denying culpability, but when police detained him, they mysteriously found him with Chan’s chain.
