PRINCETON — A Kewanee man pleaded guilty Friday to robbing a Princeton antiques store and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
David E. Jones, 31, of Kewanee pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery in Bureau County Circuit Court. He had been charged for a robbery at Anne’s Antiques, 938 N. Main St. earlier this spring.
Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich sentenced him to 10 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, of which he has already served just over four months in the Bureau County Jail, as well as two years of mandatory supervised release. Jones will also be expected to pay all the appropriate fines.
This past May, Jones along with his girlfriend, Rebecca L. Daily, 20, of Buda, were picked up on charges of armed and aggravated robbery. Jones displayed a handgun, at which time he ordered the owner of the store and a female subject to the floor. He then grabbed all the money from the register and fled on foot. Upon further investigation, authorities found the handgun Jones displayed in a dumpster near the store. It was an air pistol, not a real firearm; therefore both of them pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery instead of armed.
Daily was sentenced to six months in the Bureau County Jail, but has already been released. She will serve five years probation as sentenced by Associate Circuit Judge C.J. Hollerich as previously reported in the NewsTribune.
