Acting U.S. Attorney Stephen M. Schenning announced Monday a Maryland man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for robbing a series of cellular phone stores in Hyattsville and Beltsville.
Forty-three-year-old Sean Lamar Jordan of Forest Heights conspired with William Eugene Nolan and Ronny Anthony Ingram Jr. to rob multiple cellphone stores. Nolan utilized a loaded handgun, provided by Jordan during the robberies, according to the report.
Ingram and Nolan entered a cellular store in Beltsville on June 27, 2015, wearing ski masks. Nolan brandished the handgun and demanded to be taken to the safe, where the men believed valuable cellphones were kept. After discovering the store did not have a safe, Nolan struck an employee with the gun and fled the store. No merchandise was reported stolen.
Later that day, Jordan, Ingram and Nolan entered a cellular phone store in Hyattsville wearing ski masks. They stole about 34 electronic devices that were valued at about $20,390, before fleeing the scene.
Ingram and Nolan received about $1,700 each for the stolen goods.
Ingram was previously sentenced to 46 months in prison and Nolan was sentenced to 74 months in prison.
