Lookout at Johnson Jewelry robbery gets nine years
Erick Larkins served as the lookout during the robbery of a Woodbury jewelry store and earned a felony conviction.
Larkins, who served 325 days before being sentenced, was sentenced of first-degree aiding and abetting aggravated robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Thomas Jones took a loaded gun into the jewelry store in Seasons Market Shopping Center, near the intersection of Radio Drive and Tamarack Road, before an employee arrived for work, saw a robbery in progress, and flagged a police officer who happened to be in the parking lot.
Larkins fled, while Jones ultimately committed suicide. Another accomplice, Albert "Salt" Jones, aka Anthony Johnson, has a warrant out for his arrest.
