A man accused in a robbing a Dededo game room at knifepoint will spend the next 10 years in prison.

Jonavan Michael Cruz is convicted of second degree robbery and theft, both with a special allegation of possession or use of a deadly weapon.

Cruz held the cashier at a Dededo game room at knifepoint before taking off with $6,000. He was arrested along with a handful of others accused for their part in a slew of robberies reported around that time.
