An Arizona man has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for his role in a pot robbery near Creswell, Ore., that left one man injured.

The Register-Guard newspaper reports 27-year-old Jessie Long pleaded guilty to robbery and assault in the July 27 home invasion and will have no chance for early release.

According to court records, Long and another man went to a home to buy several pounds of marijuana. During the visit, Long's accomplice pulled out a gun and said they were going to steal the pot.

A man who lives at the home resisted, and Long's accomplice shot him in the thigh.

Both men fled, and Long was captured at his Phoenix home. He has refused to reveal the name of his accomplice, who remains unidentified and is not in custody.
