Getaway Driver in Milford Mini-Market Robberies Sentenced to 90 Months in Prison
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced yesterday that Senior United States District Court Judge Richard P. Conaboy sentenced Daviandra Gwendolyn Green, age 28, formerly of Port Jervis, New York, to 90 months’ imprisonment for her participation in the robberies of six convenience stores between April and October 2011.
According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Green previously pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Scranton to acting as a getaway driver when a confederate robbed (1) the Hilltop Sunoco/Extra Mart located at 238 State Route 6, Milford, Pennsylvania on April 6, 2011; (2) the Turkey Hill Minit Market, 912 Pennsylvania Avenue, Matamoras, Pennsylvania, on April 11, 2011; (3) the Hilltop Sunoco/Extra Mart located at 238 State Route 6, Milford, Pennsylvania on April 17, 2011; (4) the Citgo Mart, 220 Dolson Road, Middletown, New York on May 1, 2011; and (5) the Turkey Hill Minit Market, 912 Pennsylvania Avenue, Matamoras, Pennsylvania, on May 5, 2011. Green’s confederate brandished a weapon during the robberies.
Green and Jeremiah Anderson also entered the Hilltop Sunoco/Extra Mart, in Milford, Pennsylvania on October 5, 2011, and attempted to rob it without success. Anderson, age 29, also of Port Jervis, recently pleaded guilty in federal court to attempted robbery of that store and will be sentenced later this year.
Green’s two other confederates in the string of robberies were also convicted in federal court for their involvement in the scheme. Daniel Ortiz, age 28, of Watertown, New York, was sentenced to 80 months’ imprisonment. Simon Shomo, age 28, of Port Jervis, New York, received a 70 months’ imprisonment term.
Judge Conaboy ordered that Green be placed on supervised release for three years following the service of her 90-month prison sentence.
The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Eastern Pike Regional Police Department, and the Pennsylvania State Police. Assistant United States Attorney John Gurganus prosecuted the case.
