Man who robbed an EC grocery store headed to prison


EAU CLAIRE - The man who admitted to robbing an Eau Claire store at gunpoint last year is going to prison. 

Juan Carlos Benitez-Antonio was sentenced yesterday to five years in prison.

He confessed to robbing the Mexican grocery store on London Road last July. He was wearing a ski mask and carrying what turned out to be an unloaded gun.

Investigators say he got away with about a thousand dollars. As part of his sentence he must pay restitution.
