Two Charlotte men who robbed a Firehouse Subs in Indian Trail at gunpoint in February 2014 were sentenced to federal prison last week.
Dashawn Raquan Hunt, 27, was sentenced to 16 years and Davon Santario McKnight, 26, received seven years and three months. They pleaded guilty to robbery last year.
Hunt’s sentence was longer than McKnight’s because he also pleaded guilty to carjacking and use of a firearm in furtherance of a crime in connection with an incident in Mooresville four days before the Indian Trail robbery. Prosecutors said Hunt tied up a delivery driver at a McAlister’s Deli early one morning and later stole a cashier’s car at gunpoint at a nearby QT convenience store.
A second suspect in the Mooresville case, Toburia Qunita Bennett, 28, of Charlotte, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit armed robbery and was sentenced in February to three years and seven months in prison.
