HARTFORD CITY, Ind. (April 7, 2016) – A man accused of multiple bank and business robberies in east central Indiana has been sentenced to 22 years in prison.

Jason Garmon accepted a plea deal in connection with two of those crimes: a Nov. 20 robbery in Hartford City and a Dec. 20 robbery at Citizens State Bank in Dunkirk. Garmon pleaded guilty Monday to robbery and armed robbery.

A judge sentenced him to 16 years for armed robbery and 6 years for robbery, both to be served in the Indiana Department of Correction.

Garmon’s attorney said Garmon had a serious substance abuse problem. The judge recommended that Garmon undergo therapy to address his chemical dependency issues, although completing a program wouldn’t affect his sentence.

Police arrested Garmon in December. He’s also accused of robbing banks in Eaton and Winchester. Those cases are still pending.
