NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say the last of three men charged with a string of cellphone store robberies has pleaded guilty in Norfolk.

Twenty-one-year-old Edgar Brito of Virginia Beach entered his plea Tuesday in U.S. District Court. He faces seven years to life in prison when he is sentenced Oct. 19.

Two other men, Daren Artis and Alexander Horst, previously pleaded guilty and will be sentenced in September.

According to court papers, the men entered three Hampton Roads stores and held employees at gunpoint, taking cash from the registers and about $100,000 in cellphones.
