Teen gets 18 years in area robbery spree

Citizen Staff Writer



Dion Bruner, 19, one of four teenagers arrested in September in a string of violent crimes, was sentenced Monday to 18 years in prison by Pima County Superior Court Judge Richard Nichols.

Bruner’s aggravated sentence on 34 charges of armed robbery, kidnapping and rape resulted from his involvement in what Tucson police called a crime spree that included robbing the Cash Box Pawn Shop, 2014 S. Craycroft Road, and stealing guns.

The guns were used in an apartment robbery and in several robberies of convenience markets, police said.

Co-defendant Tyrel Flowers, who was 17 when he was arrested, is a member of the Bloods street gang, police said.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
