The man who robbed the Sheetz Store on East Washington Avenue last summer was sentenced Thursday to serve four years in prison.
Mark Anthony Armstrong pleaded guilty to robbery and violation of probation before Washington County Circuit Judge Donald Beachley.
The judge sentenced Armstrong to 10 years for the robbery, suspending all but four years. A concurrent 18-month sentence was imposed for the probation violation.
He was placed on probation for three years.
Armstrong, 38, apologized to the community and to the people at the Sheetz Store for the 1:45 a.m. robbery on July 7.
Deputy Washington County State's Attorney Charles Strong said the clerk was working at the counter when she saw a hand come over the counter and start grabbing money out of a register.
