Michigan Man Headed To Prison For CVS Robbery

A man who robbed the CVS Phar­macy in Angola of med­ica­tions last July before lead­ing police on a chase which ended at the Lions Den adult book store north of Cold­wa­ter was sen­tenced on Mon­day in Steuben County Court, to nine years of a 12 year prison sen­tence. 40-year-old Joseph Leif­fer of Car­leton, Michi­gan had pleaded guilty on May 14th. In exchange for that guilty plea, pros­e­cu­tors dis­missed a Level 6 felony charge of resist­ing law enforce­ment. Leif­fer was also placed on pro­ba­tion for three years upon his release from prison, and he will also have to pay $544 in resti­tu­tion to CVS. He also can never again enter a CVS store. The sen­tence he earned yes­ter­day in Indi­ana, will be served con­cur­rently with another sen­tence he was handed in Michi­gan of between 57 months and 15 years. Leif­fer was sen­tenced back in Novem­ber in Michi­gan after he entered a guilty plea to a charge of unlaw­ful impris­on­ment involv­ing an employee of an adult book store.
