A Greensburg man accused of robbing a convenience store manager who was making a bank deposit in Hempfield was sentenced Monday to serve three to six years in a state prison.
Heath Aubrey Phillips, 25, pleaded guilty before Judge Debra Pezze to charges of conspiracy and robbery. He was ordered to serve a two-year probation term consecutive to incarceration and pay $5,296 in restitution.
The robbery occurred on Oct. 4, 2010, outside the 1st National Bank Stone Bank branch office in Hempfield. Phillips and co-conspirator Jesse Nathaniel Sharp, 23, of Greensburg sprayed the manager with Mace and struck her before fleeing with $5,296, according to police. The pair wore masks during the robbery that was captured on surveillance cameras, police said.
Sharp pleaded guilty in October to robbery and conspiracy and was sentenced to serve 21⁄2 to five years in a state prison.
