PALM COAST, Fla. -- A Flagler County jury convicted a Palm Coast man of robbing a liquor store.

Jaquez Shakim Roland, 35, was found guilty of robbery with a weapon, grand theft, false imprisonment, and battery.

It was the DNA match that ultimately helped convict Roland.

On October 30th, 2011, the Palm Coast man robbed a liquor store wearing a full facial motorcycle helmet, black leather jacket, motorcycle gloves mask and motorcycle gear. After stuffing cash into his pockets, he threw away his black leather motorcycle jacket and gloves behind the liquor store.

Roland then went to a fast-food store a block away to make a phone call. His suspicious behavior was caught on video surveillance and helped police identify him. The DNA evidence on the jacket and gloves was a match.

Roland faces a maximum of 30 years in prison for robbery with a weapon, and up to five years in prison each for grand theft and false imprisonment. A sentencing hearing was set for July 12th.
