LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Jaylon Trevon Sapp, a 19-year-old from Lubbock, has been sentenced to 20 years for aggravated robbery.

The sentencing came from a July 2017 incident in which a victim reported to the police he was selling an Xbox gaming system online and Sapp arranged a meeting, according to a Lubbock Police Department report. The victim met Sapp at a Motel 6 on 66th Street and pulled a shotgun on him, demanding contents from his wallet and taking the gaming system.

After the victim reported the incident to police investigators were able to eye Sapp as a suspect. 

Investigators then contacted Sapp's sister asking to search the apartment and she agreed. While searching detectives were able to find an Xbox gaming system that matched the serial number of the stolen system.

After Sapp was arrested and told police he was present with a shotgun at the time of the robbery but did not point it at the victim, according to the report.

He was later charged with aggravated robbery and indicted on the charge in mid-June.
