FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — The man arrested after an hours-long standoff at a Northeast Fresno grocery store has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Pheng Vang learned his fate in a Fresno County courtroom Friday morning.

He previously pleaded not guilty to charges of fleeing an officer, receiving stolen property and vandalism.

They stemmed from an incident in August of 2022.

Deputies say Vang was involved in a home burglary in the Caruthers area.

He ran from authorities and hid out in a Save Mart store for two days, where he eventually fell through the ceiling and was arrested.
