10 Years for Holding Pharmacist at Gunpoint
KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — A Montana man was sentenced to 10 years in prison with five years suspended for holding a pharmacist at gunpoint.
The Flathead Beacon reports Thomas Devine was sentenced last week after pleading no contest in April to criminal endangerment.
Court documents say Devine approached the victim outside a Lakeside pharmacy and ordered the man to get inside his truck in October 2017.
He then pulled out a brown paper bag with a loaded gun and told the pharmacist that he needed a prescription filled.
Devine told investigators that he had not slept in several days and was in extreme pain.
Devine was also ordered to pay $1,485 in restitution to the victim.
