Dublin Man Gets 1 5 Years In Long wood Area Robbery
BY TERRY POPE
A man charged with robbing a Longwood store in
April was scntcnccd Monday to 15 years in prison.
In a plea agreement with District Attorney Rex
Gore, Wilton Edwards, <8. of Dublin, pleaded guilty to
common law robbery and felonious possession of a
weapon of mass destruction.
Brunswick County Superior Court Judge B. Craig
Ellis gave Edw ards [he maximum sentence 10 years hi
prison on the robbery charge anil five years on the wea
Edwards was charged April 14 by Brunswick
County sheriff's detectives, one day after he entered
Smith's Produce on N.C. V(M in Longwood with a
sawed -oil shotgun and robbed a clerk of S4(K).
Of that amount, only $55 was later recovered, said
Judge Mlis ordered that Edwards pay S345 in a-sti
tution to the store ami S4(X) to his appointed attorney.
"It's just totally out o( character for Wilton to do
something like this," Ramos told Judge Ellis.
Edwards said he may have been drinking moonshine
the day of the incident, Ramos said.
Three days later, he took sheriff's detectives to a riv
er near his home in Dublin to show them where he had
thrown the shotgun, said Ramos.
Gore asked for the maximum sentences on the two
charges. The original charge of armed robbery carried
a mandatory minimum of 14 years and a maximum of
40 years in prison.
"While it may have been out of character," said Gore,
"for her (clerk), it scared her mighty, mighty bad."
Judge Ellis also ordered that Edwards not go near
the store when he is paroled from prison.
"Someday, you will tie released," said Ellis.
"Obviously, they do not wish you to go on their prop
erty and have noted that. It would lx- trespassing lor
you to do so."
"You don't have to worry about that. Your Honor,"
According to Gore. Edwards entered the store and
asked for some roses. When the clerk said she did not
have any, Edwards left and returned about a minute lat
er with a shotgun that had a barrel less than IS inches
in length, said Gore.
A sheriff's report indicated Edwards held the gun on
the clerk and took the money from the register.
