Glouster man sentenced to 16 years for armed robbery, other charges

A third man involved in a drug-motivated armed robbery pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 16 years in prison Thursday.

Timothy Orsborne, 34, pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated robbery as part of a plea agreement with the Athens County Prosecutor’s Office.

The charge stems from an incident in March when Orsborne, Jason Johnson, 30, and Anthony Carey, 32, committed an armed robbery at Jewell’s Drive Thru Carryout in Glouster. Orsborne was driving the getaway car and Johnson went into the store with a handgun.

Prosecutor Keller Blackburn said drugs were the motive and the men stole about $200 from the carryout store.

Orsborne, of Glouster, pleaded guilty to the robbery charge and six other charges of breaking and entering, petty theft, receiving stolen property, burglary, illegal use of SNAP or WIC program benefits and possession of heroin.

He was sentenced to a total of 16 years in prison at his sentencing hearing in the Athens County Court of Common Pleas on Thursday.

Johnson and Carey also took plea agreements and were sentenced to 15 years and four years in prison, respectively.
