Robber gets 12 years for Naperville pizzeria robbery
An Oswego man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for robbing a Naperville pizzeria in January.
Travis Gamble, 22, pleaded guilty in DuPage County court Friday and was sentenced by Judge George Bakalis, according to court records.
Gamble was accused along with Cory Paytes, 22, of Montgomery, in the Jan. 16 robbery of a Papa John's Pizza on the 1200 block of West Ogden Avenue.
The men were under surveillance by Naperville police when they entered the restaurant wearing masks about 10:15 p.m. and forced two employees to crawl into a freezer at gunpoint, authorities said. The gunmen were arrested as they fled with a cellphone and $2,200 taken from the victims and registers, according to prosecutors. The weapon turned out to be a pellet gun.
Police had the men under surveillance as part of a multi-jursdictional investigation into robberies in Lisle, Oswego, Plainfield, St. Charles and Yorkville. Prosecutors said the suspects confessed to several holdups.
Paytes, who once worked for Papa John's, has pleaded not guilty and is due back in court Nov. 27. He remained in the DuPage County jail Monday.
