Dover-Foxcroft man pleads guilty to robbery
Sep. 11, 2013
BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A Dover-Foxcroft man has pleaded guilty to robbing a Bangor pharmacy last year.
John Harmon also pleaded guilty Tuesday to possessing oxycodone and an unrelated charge of aggravated assault.
Police say the 27-year-old Harmon walked into a Rite Aid store at the corner of Union and Fourteenth streets one evening last October, demanded prescription painkillers, and ran off.
He was arrested within an hour at a nearby apartment.
WABI-TV (http://bit.ly/17Pz0Yd ) reports that prosecutors are recommending a four-year prison sentence for Harmon. But Harmon wants to prove he deserves less time than that, so the judge delayed sentencing until April.
Harmon's getaway driver was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison earlier this year.
