Nelson Otero and Maxcime Cagan will each serve more than 14 years under sentencing pronounced in federal court in Newark on Monday. Both men are in their late 40s.

The two were convicted in April on 15 counts stemming from the robbery spree.

Authorities say Otero and Cagan robbed convenience stations, gas stations and liquor stores in northern and central New Jersey over a span of six weeks.

During a robbery at an Exxon station on Wayne they fired at Wayne Police Officer Brian Worrell, grazing him in the head.
