NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - A Maryland man will spend more than 20 years in prison for carjacking a Sears delivery truck in Hampton, Va.

U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride says Antonio Daniel McGhee of Essex, Md., was sentenced Thursday to 244 months in prison for his June conviction on robbery, carjacking, firearms and other charges.

Court documents show that McGhee and co-defendant Gabriel Mitchell carjacked the truck while it was delivering appliances in Hampton on Jan. 10, 2012. They were told when the truck was coming by an employee of a Sears sub-contractor, who posed as one of the victims. The actual victim was handcuffed, duct taped and blindfolded while McGhee and Mitchell stole the appliances.

The appliances were later recovered.

Mitchell is awaiting sentencing.
