The final two defendants in the seven-person conspiracy to rob the Swap Meet variety store in 2010 were sentenced to lengthy prison terms, U.S. Attorney David Hickton???s office announced Friday. U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti sentenced Zane Alexander Lundy, 27, of the Hill District, to 12 years and 10 months in prison for conspiracy to rob the North Side Swap Meet and to sell the marijuana stored there, and for carrying a firearm in relation to a crime of violence. She sentenced Derrick Holliday, also 27 and of the Hill, to 10 years and 10 months in prison on similar charges. Police said the men plotted to rob the Swap Meet variety store, and made off with $300 to $400 and a kilogram of marijuana. When police responded, some of the men fired upon them and an officer was injured when she was hit by a getaway van. Assistant United States Attorney Troy Rivetti prosecuted the cases.
