ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Two Albany teens plead guilty to robbing a South Albany convenience store at gunpoint and are sentenced to spend at least a decade in prison.

Justen Thomas and Vontavious Wilcox were both 17 when they robbed the Brothers Convenience Store on Newton Road in October 2011.

Prosecutors say they pulled T-shirts over their faces during the robbery, threw evidence in a garbage can, and played basketball as police searched for the robbers.

Wilcox was sentenced to serve 10 years in prison.Thomas to 12-years because he held a gun to the clerk's head and threatened her.
