PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- A 20-year-old Putnam County man has been sentenced in a 2011 robbery.
Shuban Lee Alberto was sentenced today to 20 years in prison by Circuit Judge Patti A. Christensen. Assistant State Attorney Jennifer Dunton said Alberto pleaded no contest in June to two counts of robbery with a firearm, a first-degree felony; and two counts of grand theft, a third-degree felony.
According to the arrest report, Alberto carried a 12-gauge, sawed-off shotgun when he and two other men robbed a convenience store in Putnam County in May 2011.
While a store employee attempted to lock the front door, two men pointed shotguns at her and forced their way into the store and demanded money. The suspects also pointed a rifle at a customer, ordered him to the floor and robbed him of his cash and his wallet.Two weeks later, Alberto broke into a food store in Putnam County and made off with cigarettes after causing $1,100 worth of damage to the front door and $100 worth of damage to a chain-link fence.
