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.

It was in March 2017, the robbery was caught on camera.

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. Assistant Attorney General Christine Tenorio thanks the Mandana Drug Task Force for catching those responsible for the string of robberies. 

"The sentence imposed today will hopefully send a clear message that we will seek the maximum punishment for violent criminals,"AG Leevin Camacho said.
