68-Cent Robbers Receive Lengthy Sentences
Two men paid a hefty price for receiving only 68 cents from robbing three people at random.
A judge in San Antonio sentenced Ryan Huerta, 19, to 18 years in prison and Arnulfo Hernandez, 20, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for their string of three holdups.
The two neighbors were armed with a .22-caliber rifle when they first robbed a Walmart employee of his pocket change. Then they attempted to rob a woman nearby and fired into her windshield as she drove off. The third victim disarmed Huerta. The men fled but got back to ram the man’s car.
Huerta used his parents’ car during the crimes and it was damaged. So the duo initially called police to file a false report that they have been robbed.
