GREENFIELD — An Indianapolis man will spend a year behind bars for driving the getaway car in an attempted robbery of a Greenfield pharmacy last year, officials said.
Rahman Glasco, 5247 Leone Drive, Indianapolis, was ordered this week to serve one year in an Indiana Department of Correction facility followed by five years on probation after pleading guilty to a felony charge.
Glasco, 20, was part of a trio of teenagers that tried to steal prescription drugs last year from the CVS Pharmacy in Greenfield, 1233 N. State St., police said.
Investigators say Glasco drove to CVS in the middle of the night in September 2015 and waited in the parking lot while a friend went into the business and handed a pharmacist a note demanding drugs, investigators said.
Police pulled Glasco’s vehicle over near the pharmacy after employees called 911 to report the robbery, according to court documents.
Glasco accepted a plea deal from prosecutors last month calling for him to plead guilty to a Level 3 felony count of conspiracy to commit robbery, according to court documents.
Glasco is the second defendant to be sentenced in the case.
DeAndre Dixon, 917 W. 29th St., Indianapolis, is serving a three-year prison sentence for his role in the attempted robbery.
Police say Dixon, 18, entered the Greenfield CVS and handed a note to the pharmacist, according to court documents.
The message read, “We are armed and dangerous,” and instructed the pharmacist to hand over narcotics, court records state.
Dixon grabbed a bottle of narcotics from the pharmacy counter and then took off through the store, the pharmacist told police.
In one of the aisles, he met a store clerk who attempted to stop him from leaving. Surveillance videos from inside the store show Dixon punching the man in the face and beating him with a container of laundry detergent, court documents state. Dixon dropped the bottle of pills in the scuffle then ran from the store.
He climbed into a car driven by Glasco, who drove away from the pharmacy, police said.
Rakim Coleman, 538 Udell St., Indianapolis, was also in the car, police said. Dixon and Coleman were both 17 at the time of the incident but were charged as adults. Both are now 18.
Police questioned Glasco after pulling his car over near the pharmacy. At the time, Glasco said he had never met Dixon before the day of the robbery and that Dixon had paid him to drive into Greenfield, court documents state.
Inside the car, officers found the note used in the robbery and the black jacket they believe Dixon wore, court records state.
All three suspects were charged with attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery, both Level 3 felonies, according to court records.
At the conclusion of his case, Dixon admitted he was guilty of both charges. Glasco pleaded guilty to the conspiracy charge in exchange for the attempted robbery charge being dropped by prosecutors.
Coleman remains in the Hancock County Jail on $8,000 cash bond. His case is pending in Hancock County Superior Court 1.
