A California man pleaded guilty Tuesday to robbing the Game Stop on Presidential Parkway in August.
Javon Britton, 34, of Sacramento, California, faces a maximum penalty of 27 years in federal prison when he’s sentenced Feb. 12, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.
Britton, armed with a rifle, robbed the store at about 4:30 p.m. Aug. 21. After receiving $492 from the cash register, he drove off in a waiting vehicle with 23-year-old Maryann Davis, also of Sacramento, authorities have said.
One of the robbery victims fired several shots at the car, and it crashed down a steep embankment behind the store.
Britton sought refuge at a nearby store where he and Davis were later apprehended, according to the news release.
Briton admitted to robbing the store, and the charges against Davis were dismissed, the release states.
