A 28-year-old Kansas City man today was sentenced to 100 years in prison for holding up two Northland fast-food restaurants.

Daniel Dumond Brown Sr. was convicted on Nov. 7 of two counts of robbery and two counts of armed criminal action for a Pizza Hut robbery in Gladstone on June 30, 2011, and an Arby’s robbery in Liberty on July 2, 2011.

Circuit Judge A. Rex Gabbert today imposed consecutive 25-year terms for each of the convictions.

Clay County Prosecutor Daniel L. White said Brown tried to throw away money taken from the Arby’s robbery moments after police pulled him over in a traffic stop.

While investigating the Arby’s holdup, police identified Brown as a suspect in the Pizza Hut robbery.

Brown had a prior Jackson County robbery conviction and had been out on parole for only several weeks before the Gladstone robbery, White said.

A co-defendant, Brandi Scofield, 27, of Liberty was sentenced to five years in prison for acting as an accessory to Brown in the hold-ups, he said.
