A man who disguised himself as Santa Claus during a 1988 armored car holdup has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. Jeffrey Stenner, 40, who was sentenced Monday, also was ordered to repay the money but said he could not do so because he had spent most of it.

Returning home after a decade in prison, one of Puerto Rico's best-known activists declared Sunday that he is willing to die for his island's independence. Antonio Camacho Negron, imprisoned for a $7-million armored-truck robbery in Hartford, Conn., in 1983, was greeted by a crowd of supporters as he arrived at San Juan's airport. "I am ready to make the sacrifice, to serve as an offering if it is necessary, for the liberty and dignity of this people," Camacho said in a speech at the airport.

A full moon was painting a phantasmagoria of shifting shapes and shadows among the mossy tombstones in the Covell Family Cemetery as four dark figures came slinking past the graves. It was Jeff Goodno and three teen-age friends--up to no good. The skulking youths weren't concerned about the possibility of ghosts and ghouls. Nor were they afraid of the eerie shadows.

Three gunmen wearing ski masks surprised armored truck guards making a bank delivery in West Hartford, Conn., and escaped with about $1 million in cash without firing a shot, police said. The heist occurred just a quarter mile from a Wells Fargo armored truck depot that was robbed of $7 million in 1983. The robbers surprised three Loomis Armored Inc. guards outside the Bank of Boston branch shortly before noon and forced them to toss their weapons under their truck.
