A Wichita man who hog-tied a Sprint store clerk and stole dozens of smartphones has been sentenced to 3.5 years in prison.

U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister’s office said Camarin McPherson, 26, was sentenced Wednesday. He pleaded guilty in August to robbery after an April 25 holdup of a Sprint store in Wichita.

Investigators say McPherson used a gun and tied up the clerk before stealing 54 Apple iPhones and 24 Samsung Galaxy phones worth more than $60,000. He also stole four LG Stylo 4 phones worth around $500 each.

Another man who acted as a lookout and helped steal the phones, Xavier Lopez, 26, is awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty in September to interference with commerce by means of robbery.
