A Camden man faces a potential sentence of 60 years in prison after being convicted by an Atlantic County jury Friday of robbing a woman in a casino parking garage three years ago.
Authorities say Dashand Chase, 23, and an accomplice netted $150 in the holdup on Aug. 4, 2009.
Chase also was convicted of bribery and witness-tampering charges related to his attempts to thwart prosecution after his arrest.
The victim, a 39-year-old woman from Egg Harbor Township, told authorities that two masked men, one with a gun, approached her as she was getting out of her car in the garage at Bally's Atlantic City Casino around 9 p.m. She said she was punched in the mouth by one of the assailants. The two men made off with her purse and cellphone, fleeing in a car that had been parked nearby.
