DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton man will serve at least 18 years in prison for two armed robberies at a Marathon gas station back in June.
On Thursday, June 6, 2019, 38-year-old Chad Barnes jumped into a vehicle at the Marathon station located at 6270 W. Third St.
He showed a firearm to the 17-year-old driver and ordered her to drive away. She hit the gas pedal and crashed into a sign.
He then jumped out of the car and got into another vehicle, ordering that 75-ear-old driver to take off.
While held at gunpoint, the victim drove as instructed and Barnes then got out of the car.
He was arrested a short time later.
Barnes pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated robbery on September 20. Both counts include 3-year firearm specifications.
He was sentenced Friday to 6-9 years for the first aggravated robbery county, 6 years on the second count, plus 3 years for the firearm specifications.
All of the sentences were ordered to run consecutively, for a total of 18-21 years in prison.Grab the FREE WDTN News App from the Apple Store or Google play. Stay up to date with all the local news, weather and sports as well as live newscasts and events as they happen.
