The man who robbed a Subway store at gunpoint September 9 was sentenced to prison after entering a guilty plea Wednesday. Reginald Dominique Bradford, 25, entered the Lanier Drive location of Subway, pointed a .22 caliber pistol at the clerk and took the cashier's wallet, phone and car keys then fled in the car. Less than an hour later the car was found abandoned. Later officers with the Statesboro Police Department's Crime Suppression Unit spotted a man fitting the description of the robber. He was still wearing the same backpack he had on during the robbery. They found the gun and other items that tied him to the robbery.
A trial was to have gotten underway Wednesday with jury selection but Bradford entered a guilty plea for armed robbery, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, theft by taking and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Superior Court Judge F. Gates Peed took the recommendation of Assistant District Attorney Joseph and sentenced Bradford to 20 years in prison followed by five years probation.
