ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- On Monday, a Maryland man was convicted of conspiracy to commit robbery after planning to commit three armed robberies of truck drivers delivering Apple products to stores, says United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Neil H. MacBride.
Thirty-one-year-old Khalil Kenyon Blackman of District Heights, Md. faces up to 20 years for the conspiracy charge and up to life in prison for brandishing a fire arm. His sentencing date is April 26.
Court records and evidence show that Blackman conspired with others to rob three drivers. They robbed one driver in Prince George's County, Md. on Feb. 11, 2011. Two other drivers were robbed on June 15, 2011 in Fairfax County, Va. and Oct. 30, 2011 in Prince George's County, Md. According to authorities, the items were usually sold to someone else.
Apple lost more than $130,000.
