District court's conviction of defendants charged with conspiracy to rob and sell the stolen drugs as a result of a setup by the government and an informant, is affirmed where: 1)there was sufficient evidence for a rational jury to conclude that the defendants agreed, amongst themselves, to the robbery plan; and 2) the district court did not commit clear error in denying the safety valve to one of the defendants as he did not meet his burden of proving eligibility for the safety valve.
