RAPAPORT... United States District Court judge James M. Munley sentenced Huby Ramkissoon to 11 years' imprisonment for the May 14, 2008 robbery of Dunay Jewelers jewelry store in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

The sentence was meted out by the judge and followed an investigation into a 2008 plan to rob Luzerne County jewelry stores.

In addition to the 11-year prison sentence, the judge ordered Ramkissoon, 38, be placed on supervised release for a period of three years following his release. The judge also ordered Ramkissoon to pay restitution in the amount of $89,285, the value of money and jewelry he stole during the robbery.

Ramkissoon was initially charged in 2008 by the Wilkes-Barre Police for the robbery. At the time the complaint was filed in 2008, he was a fugitive. On October 16, 2012, a federal grand jury in Scranton returned an indictment against him and charged him with the robbery scheme.

On December 18, 2012, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) located and arrested Ramkissoon in New York City.

On May 30, 2013, Ramkissoon pleaded guilty to two counts associated with the Dunay Jewelers robbery, namely interference with commerce by robbery and using and brandishing a firearm to carry out the theft.

The case was investigated by the FBI, the Kingston Police Department and the Wilkes-Barre Police Department.
