By  | 

ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - Three men will do at least 2 years in prison after pleading guilty to a string of armed robberies that happened in Anchorage in March of 2017.

Anchorage prosecutors say Delander Owens was sentenced to two years and his brother Detallion Owens will do seven years.

A third man, King Dunlap, who was a minor at the time the crimes were committed, was charged and tried as an adult, and was also sentenced to spend seven years behind bars.

The crimes, which occurred from late January 2017 to mid-February 2017, included a home invasion robbery at gunpoint on Karluk Street, stealing the car of a pizza delivery man, robbing a UAA student at gunpoint in his mother's home, stealing that student's car, and then carjacking another man.

Anchorage Assistant District Attorney Kevin Bergt told KTUU the three men didn’t have criminal records but they were given the maximum sentences for their crimes given that they were the most severe they could be.

Both of the Owens brothers and Dunlap pleaded guilty to their charges.
