HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Millerstown man is going to prison for the armed robbery of a Halifax discount store.
John K. Lucas, 45, was sentenced Wednesday in Dauphin County Court to 4-8 years in state prison for the Oct. 28 robbery of a Dollar General store.
Lucas had a large knife when he demanded cash from the register, authorities said. They said after the robbery, Lucas made a cash payment on his car at a local dealership.
Prosecutors said they believe Lucas’s drug use led to his financial problems and the robbery.
