GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4)– A Greeley man was sentenced to eight years in the Department of Corrections for his role in a home invasion and marijuana robbery earlier this year.
According to police and court records, George Martinez Chavez of Greeley, went to a home in Evans on May 11 and knocked on the door. When one of the victims answered the door, Chavez and two other men held the three people inside at gunpoint.
The suspects then ordered the victims to hand over cash and marijuana.
The victims told police that Chavez, 21, directed the other suspects to take certain items from the residence, including marijuana, an Atari game console, a laptop, audio equipment and an Xbox 360 game console.
Later that evening, a man reported to Evans police that his acquaintance, Chavez, had come to his apartment bragging about a new Atari game system and having robbed someone with an airsoft, or toy, gun.
Chavez pleaded guilty on July 23 to one count of second-degree kidnapping and one count of second-degree burglary of a dwelling. Both of the charges are class-four felonies.
