AKRON -- Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh tells WKYC that late Thursday Judge Tammy O'Brien sentenced George W. Beeler, 41, of Akron, to 10 years in prison.

Bevan Walsh said that, on Aug. 25, Beeler walked into Emidio's Pizza on North Main Street in Akron, pulled out a gun and robbed the restaurant of approximately $800.

The owner of the restaurant called 911 and gave a description of Beeler and the direction in which he fled.

Police found Beeler sitting on the steps of a house on Schiller Avenue, counting money. The money totaled close to $800. Beeler admitted he committed the robbery, which was captured on security video.

A jury found Beeler guilty of aggravated robbery and having weapons under disability on Feb. 11.
