Walterboro man sentenced for robbing pizza delivery driver

BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) - A 17-year-old Walterboro man was sentenced to eight years in prison Monday for the January robbery of a Beaufort pizza delivery driver.

Leonard Colleton pleaded guilty Monday to strong-arm robbery in connection with the January 8, 2011 robbery of a Domino's delivery driver as he made a stop on Capeheart Circle in Burton. During the hold up, Colleton and two unidentified suspects stole pizza, wings, a cell phone and $18 in cash.

An investigator with the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office was able to identify Colleton as a suspect by searching phone records from that night. The driver was able to pick him out of a photo lineup and described Colleton as the suspect who was pointing the gun, now believed to have been a BB gun.
