Auburn man sentenced for armed robberies of migrant workers in Cayuga County

An Auburn man was sentenced to prison Thursday for robbing migrant workers in Cayuga County.

Christopher Johnson Jr., 21, of 65 Owasco Road, was arrested in connection with two armed robberies last fall.

According to the Cayuga County Sheriff’s Office, Johnson and his co-defendants — 23-year-old Emilie Keeney and 20-year-old Devin Meacham-Wheeler — robbed two farms last year: one on Rice Road in the town of Scipio and another on Dougal Road in the town of Fleming.
