A man involved in the August burglary of a Dodge City Pizza Hut was sentenced earlier this month to 36 months in the Department of Corrections for robbery.

22-year-old Adam Nipper, Dodge City, will serve a suspended sentence of 36 months in Community Corrections. Nipper was also ordered to perform 50 hours of community service.

Nipper's initial charges were aggravated robbery and kidnapping, but the kidnapping charge was dropped during arraignment. The aggravated robbery charge was also amended to simple robbery.

Nipper was ordered to pay $238.50 to the Pizza Hut for restitution in addition to his sentence.

Court records show Nipper and 36-year-old Steven Somerville confronted employees Aug. 9 at the Pizza Hut located at 1513 W. Wyatt Earp with a weapon and demanded money.

The pair made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and left the area on foot.

Somerville has been sentenced to 34 months on a burglary charge related to the incident and five months each for an obstruction charge and a theft charge. Follow Abigail on Twitter, @Abigail_dcglobe.
