Teen Sentenced for CVS pharmacy Robbery

An 18-year-old Lima man was sentenced to four years in prison on Wednesday for robbing a Findlay drug store a year ago.

The sentence for the second-degree felony was passed on by Judge Reginald Routson of Hancock County Common Pleas Court.

Jarrett Mann pleaded guilty in April to robbing the CVS pharmacy in Findlay on May 7, 2017. The four-year sentence was part of a plea deal.

As indicated by Findlay police, three men entered the CVS Pharmacy, 463 Tiffin Ave., on May 7, 2017, jumped over the pharmacy counter and demanded a particular type of narcotic. The men did not show a weapon, and no one was injured, police said at the time of the robbery.

During his sentencing on Wednesday, Mann said that he and a friend planned to sell the drugs. His mother had trouble paying the rent and he was already working multiple jobs to help her, he said. He told the court he does not use drugs himself.

Mann apologized to the court and the victims of the robbery on Wednesday. The victims were not present.

“I take full responsibility,” Mann said. “I made a bad decision.”

At the time of the robbery, Mann was a minor. His case was transferred to Hancock County Common Pleas Court on December 28.

A co-defendant in the case, Amari T. Island, 19, of Lima, is scheduled to be sentenced on June 20. He also pleaded guilty to robbery, a second-degree felony, on April 18.
