Second Man Convicted in 2014 Minnesota Pawnshop Robbery
ST. PAUL - A second man has been convicted for his role in a Roseville pawnshop robbery that left a cashier shot and wounded.
A federal jury found 53-year-old Marvin Spencer Sr. of St. Paul guilty last week in the July 2014 robbery of a Pawn America.
Another St. Paul man, 52-year-old Derrick Lynch, also was charged and convicted for his role as Spencer's accomplice.
Prosecutors say Spencer pulled a semi-automatic handgun from his waist and shot one of the cashiers. Meanwhile, Lynch smashed a display case and grabbed jewels valued at more than $58,000.
The two robbers fled. Spencer was tracked down at a home in Moline, Illinois, and arrested. Lynch was arrested in Woodbury nearly three weeks after the crime.
Sentencing for both is pending.
