CLEVELAND (AP) - A man known in Cleveland as the “Red Shoe Robber” for his choice of footwear during hold-ups has been convicted of nearly 100 charges.

Prosecutors said 22-year-old Johnnie Harris was found guilty by a jury Monday in a robbery spree that spanned from October 2013 to March 2014. Harris targeted convenience stores, bars, gas stations and pharmacies for his late-night robberies in Cleveland and suburbs.

He became known for wearing red shoes during the robberies.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County prosecutor’s office said Harris was found guilty of 95 counts. Harris carried a weapon and fired shots in at least seven of the robberies. He’ll be sentenced later this month.

Two people have pleaded guilty to being accomplices, and another is awaiting trial.
