MIAMI - A South Florida man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for a robbery at Calder Race Track and Casino that left an armored truck guard dead.

A federal judge in Miami sentenced 28-year-old Reginald Mitchell on Thursday. Mitchell, along with Vladimir Louissant, Victoria Barkley, Byron Kyler and Uri Ammar, were convicted last fall of charges related to the August 2011 Brinks truck robbery.

Authorities say Mitchell and Ammar both worked security at Calder, and Mitchell recruited Louissant, Barkley and Kyler to help rob the truck. Court documents say Louissant fired the shot that killed Alvaro Lopez Ramos when the two men exchanged gunfire.

Louissant and Ammar were both previously sentenced to life in prison. Barkley received 10 years in prison, and Kyler received five.
