RENO, Nev. (AP) — An Incline Village man has been sentenced to seven to 23 years in prison for his part in an armed robbery at a Lake Tahoe gas station in January.

Washoe District Judge David Hardy sentenced Jorge Miranda-Rivas Thursday after a jury convicted him in September of robbery and assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a gun inside a structure and grand larceny car theft.

Prosecutors say he fired a revolver inside the Chevron in Incline Village after he entered with a bandanna over this face and demanded money from the clerk about 8:45 p.m. on Jan. 2.

He fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, but was arrested by Washoe County sheriff's deputies along with two juvenile suspects about a week later. A fourth suspect was arrested in June.
