Twinsburg -- Three people were sentenced Jan. 28 and 29 by Judge Tom Parker of the Summit County Court of Common Pleas in connection with an Aug. 16, 2012, armed robbery of a pizza delivery driver at a vacant house on Chamberlin Road.

Eugene Vasser III, 20, of Twinsburg and Derrick Williams II, 22, of Akron each pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated robbery with a firearm specification Jan. 28. Both men were sentenced to six years in prison Jan. 29 and are currently incarcerated at Lorain Correctional Institute.

Nichole Thompson, 25, of Akron pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated robbery Jan. 28 and was sentenced to four years in prison the same day. She is currently incarcerated at the Ohio Reformatory for Women in Marysville.

Frank Senvisky, 18, of Twinsburg was also charged for the crime and pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated robbery with a firearm specification Jan. 24. He will be sentenced Feb. 26.

The four were arrested in August 2012 following the robbery of a delivery driver from Marco's Pizza in Macedonia. The pizza delivery driver arrived at the vacant house on Chamberlin Drive Aug. 16 around 8:40 p.m. after the restaurant received a call from a female -- police believe it was Thompson -- ordering a delivery for that address.

The victim told police that when he pulled into the driveway, two men ran out from behind the garage and approached his car. One of the men pointed a handgun at the delivery man and demanded his smart phone, GPS and cash, which totaled $77. The driver called police after returning to the restaurant.

Police Chief Chris Noga said in a press release the investigation was based on a trace of the delivery call that led to Thompson's cell phone.
