LOGAN — A judge has sentenced two men to jail for robbing a Hyrum Subway Restaurant in December.
According to the court staff, Hector Miguel Olascoaga-Carreno and Levi Peiffer appeared separately in 1st District Court Monday morning, after previously pleading guilty in April.
Carreno was sentenced to one-year in jail for aggravated robbery, a second-degree felony and use of a controlled substance a class A misdemeanor.
Peiffer was ordered to serve six-months in jail for robbery, a second-degree felony.
Deputies report Carreno walked into the restaurant, early on the morning of December 19. The 18-year-old was wearing a ski-mask and threatened employees if they didn’t give him money. He left with $150.
During the robbery, Peiffer stood by the door of the restaurant and acted as lookout. The 19-year-old along with Carreno we’re seen by Hyrum City employees, running from the scene.
Multiple agencies including K-9 teams responded to the area and tracked the suspects back to a nearby apartment complex, where the money was located. Carreno also later failed a drug test.
Carreno said he wasn’t thinking straight at the time of the robbery because of drug abuse.
State attorney Aaron Josie had argued that Carreno should be sentenced to prison due to the nature of the crimes and criminal history. He admitted afterwards though the defendant will likely spend more time incarcerated at the jail, than if he had been sent to prison.
Carreno is also suspected to be in the country illegally and will likely be deported.
