Three Tallahassee men charged with a January armed robbery will serve at least a decade in prison each.

District Attorney Joe Mulholland says Marty Barber, Joshua Rogers, and Jacob Hutchinson were all found guilty in the armed robbery of a Kangaroo Express on Shotwell St. in Decatur County.

Mulholland says he hopes the thieves' sentences will serve as a warning.

He says. "These young men were in their early 20s and they'll be in their early 30s when they're released, and it just shows you how serious it is when you have a firearm, and clerks."

Barber entered the Kangaroo Express on January 12th with a sawed off shotgun, demanding the contents of the cash register. He fled with $175 to a van where Rogers and Hutchinson were waiting.

Rogers and Hutchinson will both serve ten years, followed by a ten year probation.

Barber will serve fifteen years, followed by a ten year probation.
