Two sentenced for armored truck robberies in Buford, other cities

By Staff
ATLANTA - Two of the nine people who pleaded guilty in a series of armored car robberies in 2010 and 2011 - including two in Buford - have received prison sentences for their crimes.

According to a written release from the office of U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates, Ashley Henderson, 30, of Atlanta was sentenced to 75 years and Stacey Dooley, 37, originally from Charlotte, NC, was sentenced to 40 years in federal prison for their part in a series of armored truck robberies between October 2010 and March 2011.

"The sentencing of these two defendants closes one chapter on a disturbingly violent robbery crew that had all Atlanta area law enforcement on high alert back in 2010 and 2011," said Yates.

Henderson was the gunman in the crimes, according to investigators, and in one incident, an armored car courier was shot and wounded. In another in March 2011, a Garda courier by the name of Gary Castillo was shot and killed.

Altogether, members of this crew were responsible for six robberies involving over $470,000, according to the US Attorney's Office.

The crimes in the Buford area included the robbery of a Dunbar Armored courier who was restocking cash in an ATM machine on November 11, 2010, at a Bank of America locatION, as well as the robbery of a Dunbar Armored courier who was heading to an ATM machine to restock it with cash inside the Mall of Georgia on December 7, 2010.
