An Akron man was sentenced Wednesday to 12 years in prison for stealing video games and cash from a business.

Duane A. Clayton, 31, of Tioga Avenue, was sentenced by Summit County Common Pleas Court Judge Lynne Callahan after being convicted Feb. 25 of aggravated robbery.

Prosecutors said that on Sept. 18, Clayton and his cousin, Myron Clayton-Foster, 20, took several video games and money from the Game Rack store on Goodyear Boulevard.

Police tracked Clayton to the basement of a nearby residence with the assistance of a K-9 unit. The stolen items and some of Clayton’s clothing were found in the yard of the building, prosecutors said.

Clayton-Foster, of Dover Avenue, previously pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery and a firearms offense and was sentenced to seven years in prison.

They found some of his clothing. How did they link that to him? Was his name printed on the tags?

They found his pants. You do know it is difficult to run with stolen items in one hand and using the other hand to hold up your pants.
