A Milliken man who, last month, pled guilty to robbing a Greeley Pizza Hut was sentenced to 15 years in prison in Weld County District Court yesterday.
On January 13, an employee at the 4637 29th St. Pizza Hut in Greeley, called police and reported a robbery. When officers arrived at the scene, they found store tags and other evidence including footprints, outside the restaurant, indicating the robbers had walked to the restaurant from a local sporting goods store.
Officers conducted interviews with people at the store and were told that a “suspicious” man and woman had entered the store earlier in the evening. After reviewing the security tapes, officers were able to identify Sean Oliver, a Milliken resident, as the “suspicious” man. Oliver was arrested one week later.
The woman was identified as Tori Bell and was arrested on January 25. Both individuals were charged with aggravated robbery; a class 3 felony. After pleading guilty to the charge on April 8, Bell was sentenced to four years of community service.
Sean Oliver pled guilty to his robbery charge on April 21. Aug. 25, Oliver was sentenced to 15 years in prison. The sentence included an eight-year sentence for a drug distribution charge in 2009.
Bell’s case has been re-opened due to a violation of her sentence and she will resentenced on September 2.
