Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) - It appears a discarded red Solo cup led to a more than four-year prison sentence in a Minnesota carjacking case.

21-year-old Delaney Harris of Chicago has been sentenced to 52 months in federal prison for a violent carjacking in Minneapolis last summer. He received the prison term last week after entering a guilty plea to a federal charge of aiding and abetting carjacking.

According to the Minneapolis Police Department, officers responded to a report of a carjacking in downtown Minneapolis on June 1 of last year. A witness told police that two men approached a man as he was exiting his vehicle and threw him to the ground. One of the attackers brandished a gun and threatened to kill the victim while demanding his car keys.

The witness also told police that one of the carjackers had been holding a red plastic cup just before the incident took place and the responding officers were able to recover it. Fingerprints and DNA found on the cup were used to identify Harris as one of the carjackers. The other man involved in the crime has not been identified.
