FREMONT -- The last defendant arrested in three armed robberies that took place in the Bay Area was convicted and sentenced this week for his role in the stickups.
Roderick Lane, 22, of Oakland, was found guilty of robbery and grand theft on Wednesday and was sentenced to 10 years in prison, said Fremont police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques.
During separate trials, jurors found that Lane and two other men -- Korey Haulcy, 25, of Union City, and Michael Fletcher, 18, of San Leandro -- committed three robberies Nov. 12, 2010, at automated teller machines in Fremont, Newark and Union City.
In each heist the group approached someone at an ATM, pointed a gun at the victim and demanded money. A victim in one case was beaten when he refused to comply.
Police also discovered that the same three suspects also robbed a jewelry store in Fremont a few days after the ATM robberies.
Fletcher was found guilty of robbery in May 2012 and sentenced to 18 months in jail. Haulcy was found guilty of robbery and grand theft in April 2013 and sentenced to 10 years in prison.
