A 24-year-old man will get eight years in prison for stealing a group of purebred Yorkshire Terriers at gunpoint from a Wilshire-area home.Troy Cabral, who was caught on tape during the robbery, broke down in tears Thursday as the judge announced his fate.

His accomplice, 19-year-old Ryan Betton, had already been sentenced to two years in prison.

The theft took place last February after the men had seen an ad on television offering puppies for sale for $2,500 each.
