Raleigh, N.C. — A 27-year-old Fayetteville man will spend the next 25 years in prison after pleading guilty to robbing an Internet gaming business, federal prosecutors said Thursday.
Lonnell Deangelo McRae was sentenced on Thursday after pleading guilty in February to Hobbs Act robbery, brandishing a firearm during a federal crime of violence and carjacking.
McRae, along with Gregory James Burgess, robbed the Little Vegas Sweepstakes in Fayetteville, forced two people into a room, tied them up with computer and telephone cords and took a truck, federal prosecutors said.
Burgess received 14 years for the crime.
