SNOW HILL, Md.- Two Delaware men, each convicted of two counts of robbery in connection with a pair of robberies that occurred in Ocean City, Md., have been sentenced to several years behind bars.

Kevone Bunting, 19, and Adrian Matthews, 21, were found guilty in Worcester County Circuit Court for their involvement in the two robberies that occurred in Ocean City on Oct. 21, 2018. They were two of four suspects identified by police.

According to prosecutors, the first robbery occurred in a hotel restroom near 37th Street shortly before 8 p.m. Matthews reportedly held a gun to the victim's neck while Bunting stole his cellphone, credit card and cash.

A short time later, the pair reportedly robbed a convenience store clerk, with Matthews once again pointing a gun at the victim while Bunting took money out of the register, prosecutors said.

Ocean City police had descriptions of the suspects as well as the vehicle used during the robberies. The four suspects were found by police the same evening, and during a search of the car, officers found the stolen property and clothing worn by Bunting and Matthews during the robberies. Officers were also able to located a black "semi-automatic style" BB gun used by the suspects that had been discarded near the beach at 60th Street, according to prosecutors.

Judge Brian D. Shockley sentenced Bunting to serve 10 years in the Division of Correction, with five years suspended on each count of robbery. 

Matthews was ordered to serve 12 years in the Division of Correction with six years suspended on each count of robbery.

The sentences are consecutive, meaning Bunting received an active sentence of 10 years, and Matthews received an active sentence of 12 years, prosecutors said.
