Man sentenced to 68 years for string of robberies
A Brooklyn man who launched an armed robbery spree was sentenced to 68 years in prison for the crimes.
Robert Costan, 48, was convicted of robbing five businesses a total of 12 times in between October and November 2012.
“The long prison time he now faces sends a clear message that those who would disrupt the safety of our communities will pay dearly for their crimes,” said Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson.
Costan targeted a Tasti D-Lite in Park Slope three times, a nearby laundry facility twice, a dry cleaners in Prospect Heights three times and a couple of Subway restaurants.
