A Volusia County man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after the armed robberies of a Palm Coast gas station and a Volusia County store.
Collin Calvert, 21, was sentenced for the Dec. 19 armed robbery of a Mobil gas station on Pine Lakes Parkway in Palm Coast and a Dec. 22 armed robbery in Port Orange, a press release from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office said.
Calvert stole around $4,700 from the Palm Coast gas station and the AR-15 used in the robbery from a home in Port Orange, according to his arrest report. He pleaded no contest to all charges, in both counties.
If the case had gone to trial, he could have been sentenced to life in prison, according to court documents.
Instead, after his 10 years in prison, he will face five years of probation. The 242 days Calvert has been in custody since his arrest will be credited toward his sentence, the documents said.
Between Flagler and Volusia Counties, he was charged with robbery with a firearm, four counts of grand theft with a firearm, two counts of dealing in stolen property, armed burglary of an unoccupied structure and criminal mischief.
