CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A Pittsburgh man was sentenced to eight years in federal prison after admitting to robbing a Fayette County pharmacy at gunpoint and stealing thousands of dollars worth of prescription painkillers.
Kevin Ian Davis, 31, pleaded guilty in August to conspiracy to commit robbery and was sentenced Thursday by U.S. District Court Thomas Johnston, according to a statement by U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin.
Davis told authorities he went to the New River Family Health Center Pharmacy in Scarbro on June 19, 2008 with the intention of stealing prescription oxycodone and morphine. He admitted he had a handgun.
His co-conspirator, Christina Foster, 34, of Montgomery, told authorities she drove Davis to the pharmacy and then after the robbery drove him away. She pleaded guilty to conspiracy in August and was sentenced in November to two years in federal prison.
Authorities said it cost the pharmacy $2,412 to replace the oxycodone pills and $697 to replace the morphine pills.
Davis and Foster were both ordered to make restitution to the pharmacy.
State Police conducted the investigation while Assistant U.S. Attorney John File handled the prosecution.
