LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — A Danville man will spend several decades behind bars for a rash of robberies across Virginia and North Carolina.
Justin Stallings was found guilty in March of seven armed robberies.
He was recently sentenced to 54 years behind bars for his role in robberies in Danville, Bedford, Rocky Mount, and North Carolina. The robberies occurred between December 2016 and February 2017.
Prosecutors said in each robbery, Stallings entered the store around closing and pointed a gun at employees.
“This case illustrates our commitment to prosecuting violent offenders and serious firearms offenses in federal court,” U.S. Attorney Thomas Cullen said. “I am grateful for the hard work and continuing support of our many state and local partners in helping us to identify violent offenders in specific communities and hold them accountable under federal law.”
