HURON, S.D. (AP) - Jurors have convicted a man charged in a staged armed robbery of a Huron convenience store.

Performance Radio of Huron reports that a jury on Friday convicted Donnell Williams of grand theft. He faces up to five years in prison.

Williams and Sidney Malone Jr. are accused of setting up a fake armed robbery at the store where both men worked.

Malone pleaded guilty to grand theft and was sentenced in July to 30 days in jail.

Williams is accused of bringing a handgun into the store and pointing it at Malone on Jan. 29. Malone says more than $3,100 dollars was taken.

Prosecutors say Malone cooperated in the investigation.
