Walgreens Robber Pleas to 30 Years in Prison

March 15, 2011 by Anonymous

Monday, Alan Burton Davis pled guilty in a Parker County District Court and was sentenced to 30 years in prison for the June 2010 aggravated robbery of the Walgreens on Main Street in Weatherford. According to Assistant District Attorney Nikki Morton, Davis also pled guilty to 12 years in prison for his attempt to rob the same store a second time, only a month later.
According to Morton, Davis initially robbed the Weatherford store on June 28, 2010, dressed as an injured man with a crutch and his head wrapped in bandages. After threatening the pharmacist with a gun and jumping over the pharmacy counter, Davis got away with over $5000 worth of oxycontin. Morton stated that Davis returned to the Weatherford Walgreens on July 25, 2010, with the intent to again rob the pharmacy, but that store employees recognized Davis and called police, who arrested Davis.
In an interview with detectives after his arrest, the 28-year-old Davis admitted that his severe drug addiction to heroin and oxycontin lead him to commit the robberies in Weatherford, as well as one in Mineral Wells.
District Attorney Don Schnebly said, “Because he exhibited a weapon in the robbery, Davis will have to stay in prison for at least 15 calendar years before even being considered for parole.”
