Matthew A. GarciaMatthew A. Garcia, 20, was sentenced to 14 years in prison in connection with the Aug. 24, 2011, robbery in Raytown of a driver who had pulled over to the side of the road in Raytown.

A Jackson County judge sentenced Garcia to 14 years last week; Garcia pleaded guilty on Oct. 28 to Robbery 2nd Degree. He also was sentenced to five years on two other burglary counts; that five-year sentence will run concurrently to the 14-year sentence. After his sentencing, Garcia surrendered as was sent to the Missouri Department of Corrections to begin to serve his sentence.

According to court records, Raytown Police officers found the robbery victim in the 9000 block of East 85th Terrace. The victim told police that the suspect pressed a gun to his head after he pulled his vehicle over and was calling for assistance. The suspect took his phone and wallet, driver’s license and other personal items. Soon after, Raytown police were tipped to two men running east on 85th Terrace and Garcia was taken into custody
