Pizza delivery robber receives 8-year sentence

A 17-year-old Walterboro man was sentenced to eight years in prison Monday for the January robbery of a Beaufort-area pizza delivery driver. Leonard Colleton pleaded guilty Monday to strong-arm robbery in connection with the January 8, 2011, robbery of a Domino’s delivery driver as he made a stop on Capeheart Circle in Burton. During the hold up, Colleton and two unidentified suspects stole pizza, wings, a cell phone and $18 in cash. An investigator with the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office was able to identify Colleton as a suspect by searching phone records for the night in question. The driver was able to pick him out of a photo lineup and described Colleton as the suspect who was pointing the gun, now believed to be a BB gun. The case was prosecuted by assistant solicitor Casey Rankin. Judge Michael G. Nettles handed down the sentence.
