NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A Portsmouth man has been convicted in federal court stemming from a robbery spree in the Hampton Roads area.

Twenty-seven-year-old Jonathan Ray Allen faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 207 years in prison on charges of robbery, felony use of a firearm and conspiracy to commit robbery.

Allen was convicted by a federal jury in Norfolk on Friday. Sentencing has been set for June 28.

Court records show Allen and several co-conspirators robbed nine stores between May and June 2011. Among them were check-cashing stores, a shoe store and a Family Dollar. Some employees were threatened with death if they didn’t comply with demands for money.
