Florida Scammers That Hit NE Tennessee Sentenced to 4 Years in Prison

A pair of Florida men who used skimmers on area gas pumps to steal more than $13,000 were both sentenced to around 3-4 years in prison last week.

49-year old Richard Viera was sentenced to 40 months in prison, 37-year old Luis Raul Hernandez-Ugando was given a 4-year sentence.

Prosecutors say the pair used the ill-gotten gains to make purchases in Greeneville, Johnson City, Kingsport, and Elizabethton.
