FORT WORTH (AP) - A convicted felon has been sentenced to 99 years in prison for robbing a North Texas phone store and locking a worker in a safe.

Tarrant County prosecutors on Monday announced the penalty for 26-year-old Osbaldo Valdez. Jurors on Thursday convicted Valdez of aggravated robbery for a holdup last February in Fort Worth.

Investigators say Valdez wore a mask and pointed a gun at a Metro PCS worker, stole some money and also took some cellphones before locking her in a safe. She called 911 from inside the safe.

A witness saw the robber flee. Surveillance video also linked the holdup to Valdez, who used the stolen phones to call his mother and a girlfriend.

Records show Valdez, who was sentenced Friday, has previous convictions for burglary and assault.
