Thursday, August 01, 2013

The second man charged in a violent jewelry store robbery in Manayunk back in 2011 was found guilty on Thursday.

Prosecutors say Anthony Burnett was one of two men who used disguises and worked together to pull off the job inside A.I. Poland Jewelers.

During the heist, the owner was tied up and pistol whipped.

The other man, Raheem Hankerson, already pleaded guilty in the case.
