Cynthiana man sentenced for robbing Lexington pharmacy
And for possession with intent to distribute Hydrocodone
From U.S. Attorney's Office
U.S. Department of Justice, Eastern District of Kentucky
LEXINGTON, KY - (Tue 29 Aug 2017) - Miguel David Ayala, 38, of Cynthiana, Ky., was sentenced yesterday to 150 months in federal prison for robbing a pharmacy and possession with intent to distribute Hydrocodone . Ayala was also ordered to pay $3,219.61 in restitution.
Senior U.S. District Judge Joseph M. Hood formally sentenced Ayala after he was convicted by a jury, following a three-day trial. The evidence at trial established that, on July 8, 2015, Ayala robbed the Rite Aid Pharmacy on Executive Drive in Lexington, Kentucky. During the robbery, Ayala, who was armed with a handgun, stole approximately 4,000 Hydrocodone pills, a Schedule II controlled substance. The evidence also established that following the robbery Ayala possessed these stolen pills with intent to distribute them.
Under federal law, Ayala must serve 85 percent of his prison sentence; and upon his release, he will be under the supervision of the United States Probation Office for three years.
Carlton S. Shier, IV, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky; Timothy J. Plancon, DEA Special Agent in Charge of the Detroit Field Division; Mark G. Barnard, Chief of the Lexington Division of Police; and Ray Johnson, Chief of the Cynthiana Police Department, jointly announced the sentence.
The investigation was conducted by the DEA, the Lexington Police Department, and the Cynthiana Police Department. The United States was represented by Assistant United States Attorney Robert M. Duncan, Jr.
