A Warner Robins man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison without parole for the armed robbery of a SunTrust Bank nearly two years ago, according to a Houston County District Attorney’s Office news release.
Joshua Nathan Myers, 26, was sentenced Friday in Superior Court after pleading guilty to the March 17, 2008, armed robbery, the release stated.
He also was sentenced to 10 years probation, the release said.
According to the release, Myers handed a bank teller a note demanding money and warning, “I will blow your head off.”Witnesses described a “bio-hazard” tattoo of Myers’ that linked him to the armed robbery, the release said.
Warner Robins police detectives Shane Mann and Brad Mules were credited with the arrest of Myers, who had a large amount of cash on him, the release said. The detectives also found clothes and a vehicle that matched that of the armed robber, the release said.
According to the release, Myers told authorities he robbed the bank to pay for drugs. Myers denied he had a gun, the release said.
