Newark Man Sentenced For String of Pharmacy Robberies

Federal prosecutors say a Newark man involved in a string of pharmacy robberies in northern New Jersey two years ago has been sentenced to 15 years in state prison.

Reginald Ware had pleaded guilty last year to charges of conspiracy to commit the robberies, brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence and carjacking. He was sentenced Tuesday.

Prosecutors say the 42-year-old Ware and a co-conspirator, Rahoo Drew of Newark, held up pharmacies in Jersey City and Union City between July and October of 2010. The pair brandished guns and threatened to kill their victims before stealing drugs, cash and jewelry.

The carjacking occurred in Jersey City in October 2010. Prosecutors say the vehicle was used as a getaway car during one of the pharmacy robberies.

Drew is awaiting sentencing.
