Prosecutors says 23-year-old David Lin Pankey pleaded guilty to 4 counts of robbery, 2 counts of abduction, burglary with a deadly weapon, possession of a sawed-off shotgun and 4 counts of using a firearm to commit robbery.
Investigators say Pankey had forced himself into a home wearing a black ski-mask while armed with a sawed-off shotgun. Inside the home were four adults and one child.
