SAN DIEGO — A man who robbed several fast-food restaurants at gunpoint, placing some of the victims in the cooler or freezer, was convicted Thursday of a dozen felony charges, including robbery, attempted robbery and burglary.

Jurors, however, deadlocked on 14 kidnapping and other counts against 32-year-old Donavan Robbins.

The defendant — who has a 2006 robbery conviction — faces about 70 years in state prison when he is sentenced Aug. 7.

After a little more than a day of deliberations, the jury found Robbins guilty of armed holdups at Papa John’s, Burger King, Subway and KFC in late 2013.

A woman who acted as a lookout during three of the robberies, Roxanne Monzon, also known as Roxanne McQueen, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing and was sentenced to a year in jail.
