Johnson gets three years for robbery

SEATTLE _ A Fall City man was recently sentenced to more than


three years in prison for the armed robbery of the Sno-Falls Credit Union in


November, 1999.


Robert Anthony Johnson, 20, was ordered to serve 41 months in


prison by United States District Judge Thomas Zilly. According to court


records, on Nov. 22, Johnson robbed the bank of $2,945.


Johnson had previously pleaded guilty to robbing the credit


union, 4219 Preston-Fall City Road, Fall City. Federal prosecutors said


Johnson entered the credit union about 9:40 a.m., wearing an open-faced, black


ski mask and a black "DARE" sweatshirt. He then approached a teller, threw


a plastic, grocery-store-type sack on the counter and said, "This is a robbery."


Prosecutors also said Johnson pointed a stainless steel


automatic handgun at the teller. After getting the money, he fled the credit union


on foot.


In addition to the time in prison, Zilly ordered Johnson to pay


$2,945 in restitution and serve a five-year parole term.
