Wichita man sentenced for part in cell phone robbery

A Wichita man who served as lookout while another man hog-tied a Sprint store clerk and stole more than 75 cell phones has been sentenced to nearly six years in prison.

Twenty-six-year-old Xavier Lopez was sentenced Thursday after he
pleaded guilty in September to robbery.  He admitted that he was lookout while 26-year-old Camarin McPherson, of Wichita, robbed the Sprint store on April 25.

McPherson tied up the clerk and brandished a handgun before taking 78 phones.

The two men were arrested after their vehicle crashed during a police chase.

McPherson was sentenced in November to 13 1/2 years in prison.
