A 23-year-old Grandview man pleaded guilty Tuesday to participating in a string of armed robberies of people who responded to ads on Craigslist.
Troy Wright was the second of three men charged in the case to plead guilty in connection with six armed robberies in the summer of 2014.
He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit armed robbery, aiding and abetting in the discharge of a firearm during a crime of violence and six counts of aiding and abetting armed robbery.
According to federal prosecutors, Wright and the other defendants posted ads on Craigslist in which they offered to buy or sell items.

People who responded to the ads were robbed at gunpoint of cash and property. In one case, a husband and wife from Liberty were both wounded when they answered an ad.
A sentencing hearing will be scheduled for Wright later. He faces a sentence of 20 to 27 years in federal prison under the terms of Tuesday’s plea agreement.
