Northland fast-food robber gets 100-year sentence

A 28-year-old Kansas City man on Friday was sentenced to 100 years in prison for holding up two Northland fast-food restaurants.

Daniel Dumond Brown Sr. was convicted Nov. 7 of two counts of robbery and two counts of armed criminal action for a Pizza Hut robbery in Gladstone on June 30, 2011, and an Arby’s robbery in Liberty on July 2, 2011.

Circuit Judge A. Rex Gabbert imposed consecutive 25-year terms for each conviction.

Clay County Prosecutor Daniel L. White said Brown tried to throw away money taken in the Arby’s robbery moments after police pulled him over in a traffic stop.

While investigating the Arby’s holdup, police identified Brown as a suspect in the Pizza Hut robbery.

Brown had a prior Jackson County robbery conviction and had been out on parole for only several weeks before the Gladstone robbery, White said.

A co-defendant, Brandi Scofield, 27, of Liberty, was sentenced to five years in prison for acting as an accessory.
