CLEVELAND - Cuyahoga County prosecutors said that they've convicted a man who headed up a ring of thieves that terrorized and robbed senior citizens, 19/43 News reported.
A judge sentenced Bernard Johnson to 21 years in prison on Monday.
Prosecutors said that Johnson led a group of thieves that would pose as police so that seniors would let them into their homes.
The thieves would proceed to terrorize and rob the senior citizens.
Johnson was convicted in two cases, he has three more cases pending and he's a suspect in many more.
"There are about 20 or 30 other elderly victims in the area as I understand it," assistant Cuyahoga County prosecutor Terri Tiburzio said. "They haven't been able to solve these crimes."
