A Lakewood man is serving a 10-year prison sentence for an armed robbery he was linked to when he cashed a stolen money order on a trip to Hawaii.

Chauncey Williams, 25, was sentenced Feb. 10, after he was convicted Jan. 24 of robbing the Oakbrook Contract Postal Unit in Lakewood, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. Cashing the money order identified him as one of three robbers in the June 7, 2011 crime.

He’s convicted of armed robbery and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, for pointing a gun at the clerk and demanding the money in the till.
