Fast-food robberies net Florida man gets 25 years in prison


A string of fast-food robberies with a gun has netted a South Florida man 25 years in federal prison.

The sentence was imposed last week by a Miami federal judge on 46-year-old Zeddrick Smith, who pleaded guilty in March to robbery and weapons charges.

The Miami Herald reports ( that Smith knocked over two Farm Stores, two Domino's Pizza outlets, a Burger King and a Dairy Queen in November and December of last year. Court records show he stole a few thousand dollars in the robberies.

Smith earlier served more than 13 years in prison for an unlawful weapons transport conviction. If he serves this latest 25-year term, Smith will have been imprisoned for three-quarters of his adult life.
