Raymond Glenn Johnson (2017)

DURANT, Okla. (KXII) - A Dallas man could spend decades in prison after DNA linked him to the 2016 robbery of a Durant convenience store.

A jury convicted Raymond Glenn Johnson, 51, Feb. 2 of robbery with a weapon after a former conviction of a felony and recommended a 40-year prison sentence.

Police say Johnson bought a Mountain Dew before going outside to finish it and smoke a cigarette. They say that was when he went back inside the EZ Mart and robbed the store at gunpoint.

Police say Johnson told the clerk he would kill her if she told anyone or hit the panic alarm.

DNA from the Mountain Dew and cigarette butt were used to identify Johnson as the suspect.

Formal sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 28.
