Las Vegas man sentenced to more than 14 years in robbery spree

A Las Vegas man has been sentenced to more than 14 years in federal prison in the armed robberies of six businesses during the summer of 2013.

Herbert Johnson, 23, pleaded guilty in April to six counts of interference with commerce by robbery and one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, according to Nevada U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden.

Johnson robbed three gas stations, a pizza store, and two bars in July and August 2013, his plea agreement states.

He has a lengthy criminal record, including a prior robbery conviction, and has a pending murder charge against him.

His accomplice in two of the 2013 robberies, Quincy Stephens, pleaded guilty to robbery and firearms charges and was sentenced in October to more than 12 years in prison.

The case was investigated by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force and the Metropolitan Police Department.
