Louisiana man sentenced for 9 robberies in 3 states in 2016
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A man has been sentenced to more than 18 years in prison for nine robberies in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama — including one where he ordered a cheeseburger before robbing a fast-food restaurant.
The U.S. attorney’s office for eastern Louisiana says Monday that 32-year-old Christopher Simms of New Orleans was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Judge Eldon E. Fallon.
Court documents show Simms pleaded guilty to robbing four fast-food restaurants, three stores and two banks in January and February 2016.
The robberies were at Sonny’s Discount convenience store in Silver Creek, Mississippi; three McDonald’s restaurants in New Orleans and one in Kenner, Louisiana; a Family Dollar store in New Orleans; a Dollar General store and an Iberia Bank in Metairie, Louisiana; and a Compass Bank in Mobile, Alabama.
