Man pleads guilty to 2016 armed robbery of Houston Rd. Pizza Hut
MACON, Ga. -- A man pleaded guilty Tuesday to robbing a Pizza Hut last August and was sentenced to 18 years in prison.
According to a release from Amy Leigh Womack with the District Attorney's Office, 38-year-old Reginald Dino Gilmore entered his guilty plea right before a jury was selected for his trial.
Womack's release said evidence in the trial would have shown that Gilmore and another man entered the Houston Rd. Pizza Hut just before it closed on Aug. 5, 2016.
Gilmore then demanded money from the manager at gunpoint then left.
The release also said a pizza delivery driver followed the two men to Magnolia Court Motel at 4739 Houston Rd. then told authorities.
Gilmore and 25-year-old Quayshaun Varqui Adams were later arrested at the motel. Both the Pizza Hut manager and driver identified Gilmore as the man who robbed them.
Gilmore sentenced to 18 years in prison without the possibility of parole. He was convicted of armed robbery in Washington County in 1996.
Charges against Adams are still pending, according to the release. However, he was indicted for armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon in October in connection to the Pizza Hut incident.
The indictment states that Adams was convicted of felony child molestation in Jackson County in 2009.
