Anchorage man convicted of gas station robbery
A man convicted of a two homicides during 1976 robberies in Fairbanks has been convicted of robbing an Anchorage gas station.
State prosecutors say an Anchorage jury Tuesday convicted 57-year-old Randy Lee Osborne of first-degree robbery.
He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 2 and faces 15 to 99 years in prison.
Prosecutors say Osborne was on parole in January 2013 when he showed up at an Anchorage Shell Station and threatened to shoot a clerk unless he was given money.
Osborne told the clerk he had a gun in his right hand, which he kept in his pocket.
Prosecutors say the clerk handed over $438 and Osborne fled in the passenger side of a car.
