Man who used wheelchair in Rolex theft pleads guilty

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man who pretended he needed a wheelchair so he could steal a $37,000 watch from a jewelry store is heading to prison. The Connecticut Post (http://bit.ly/2dC4jOn ) reports that 36-year-old Larry Johnson of Waterbury pleaded guilty Wednesday to robbery, larceny and assault. Authorities say Johnson entered a Stamford jewelry store in a wheelchair in May 2015 and asked to see a Rolex watch. Once he had the watch in hand, he got out of the wheelchair, used Mace on the sales clerk and the security guard and knocked the guard to the ground as he ran out of the store. Johnson was tied to the theft by a fingerprint left on the wheelchair. He faces a sentence of six years in prison when he's sentenced Dec. 7. ___ Information from: Connecticut Post, http://www.connpost.com Copyright 2016 The Associated Press . All rights reserved.
