PORTLAND, Ore. -- A 24-year-old man has been sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison after he was convicted of six armed robberies that occurred within five hours in the Portland area.

Jesus Alberto Martinez was convicted of six counts of robbery with a firearm following a week long trial.

Court records say he held up clerks at four Plaid Pantry convenience stores and a Subway Restaurant, usually stealing cash from the register and Oregon Lottery tickets.

Four of the robberies occurred in Portland and one took place in Gresham on April 10, 2018. In one location, two victims were identified, leading to six robbery counts.

Police say Martinez acted with a group of thieves which included three juveniles.

One of the teens pleaded guilty to six counts of robbery. Police haven't publicly identified the other two juveniles.
