Man involved in robbery at gunpoint sentenced to 2 years

One of three men accused of robbing a driver at gunpoint in Brundidge in November 2016 has been sentenced to two years in prison after a guilty plea.

Trey Wilson, 19, was originally charged with three counts of first-degree robbery for his involvement in the incident, but he pleaded down to three charges of second-degree robbery.

“The robbery was on a produce truck that was making its regular route in Brundidge,” said Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport. “A female worker was robbed at gunpoint. The owner of the produce truck attempted to subdue one of the men but they all got away. As one of the men was running, a shot was fired.”

The robbery occurred on November 9, 2016, on Lawson Street.

Devantavise Mency, 23, and Gregory Dees, 20, were also arrested in connection with the robbery.

Neither of the two have yet been sentenced.

Wilson has already served 10 months of his sentence and is scheduled to be released in January of 2019 from Kilby Correctional Facility in Montgomery.
