Two convicted in North Side Swap Meet robbery sentenced to prison
Two men convicted of participating in the 2010 robbery of the Swap Meet on the North Side will spend more than a decade in prison, a federal judge ruled Friday.
U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti sentenced Derrick Holliday, 27, to 10 years and 10 months in prison and sentenced Zane Alexander Lundy, 27, to 12 years and 10 months in prison. Both men pleaded guilty in April to drug and robbery conspiracy and use of a firearm in a drug trafficking crime.
They are two of seven men indicted for the robbery of the Brighton Road indoor flea market where police recovered pounds of marijuana and characterized it as a front for drug dealing. The robbery led to a shootout with police and the injury of a police officer struck by a getaway van.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
