BALTIMORE (AP) — A man who robbed five cell phone stores at gunpoint has been sentenced to 16 years in prison.

Twenty-four-year-old Parris Chisholm of Millersville was sentenced Thursday federal court in Baltimore.

According to his plea agreement, from January to March 2013, Chisholm and others robbed the stores in Anne Arundel, Baltimore and Montgomery counties at gunpoint. Prosecutors say the robbers tied up employees and customers with duct tape, and made off with cash, credit cards, cell phones and tablets.
