Woodbury man sentenced for three armed robberies


GOSHEN – A Woodbury man, who robbed three businesses while armed with what appeared to be a gun, was sentenced on Monday by Orange County Court Judge William DeProspo to two concurrent sentences of 11 years state prison and five years of post-release supervision.

John Elliott, 31, pled guilty on June 6, 2018 to two counts of armed robbery in connection with robberies in the Town of Monroe between December 2016 and December 2017.

The prosecution alleged that on December 23, 2016, Elliott entered the Charming Charlie women’s store in Monroe, pulled a gun and demanded money. He was given $900 in cash before fleeing. On February 14, 2017, he held up the Edible Arrangements store in Monroe while armed with a gun and robbed the store of over $1,300 in cash.

Elliot was also charged with robbery in connection with the December 13, 2017 robbery of Sallies Beauty Supplies in Monroe where he was alleged to have simulated a gun in his pocket and robbed the store of about $300.

He faces additional charges in the State of Florida.

“Orange County’s citizens can feel just a bit safer while the defendant is in prison for more than the next decade,” said District Attorney David Hoovler. “Hardworking people are entitled to feel secure in their places of business.”
