GREENBELT, Md. (WUSA9) -- A Temple Hills man was found guilty in federal court Tuesday of an armed robbery at a Pizza Hut in Bowie, Md.
Gary Hancock Jr., 37, was convicted of robbery, brandishing a firearm during the robbery and being a felon in possession of a gun and ammunition in connection to the May 2013 robbery.
According to federal prosecutors, Hancock robbed the Pizza Hut on the 1200 block of Crain Highway in Bowie. They say he entered the store, pointed a handgun at an employee and demanded a safe be opened.
When the employee said he could not open the safe, prosecutors say Hancock demanded money from the cash register. The employee gave him the money and Hancock fled the store on a motorcycle.
