Christopher McCain, 27, was arrested on Jan. 28, 2012 after a Metro PCS store employee was able to get the tag number of McCain’s getaway car. McCain was still in possession of his loaded .45 caliber pistol when officers from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office arrested him.    

According to court documents, McCain robbed three different Metro PCS stores in January 2012, taking a total of $2,211.

McCain pleaded guilty to two counts of robbery and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence on July 3, 2014.
