Macon man sentenced to 20 years following robbery outside Starbucks
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A third man is going to prison for the role he played in a robbery outside a Starbucks in Macon in July of 2016.
22-year-old Travonta Deshawn Sinclair pleaded guilty to several charges this week including armed robbery and violating Georgia’s Street Crime Terrorism and Prevention Act.
Sinclair was sentenced to 20 years, and he will serve 10 of them in prison without the possibility of parole.
The District Attorney’s Office says Sinclair was one of the men who approached two employees outside the Starbucks on Tom Hill Sr. Boulevard in Macon.
It happened while the employees were sitting on a patio after the restaurant closed.
Shortly after, authorities say, two men wearing sunglasses and bandannas approached the employees. One of the suspects had a gun.
The two men got away with $20 in tip money from one of the employees.
21-year-old Davontae Cobb and 18-year-old Mali Thornton have already been sentenced to 10 year in prison and 10 years on probation.
