Jacksonville, FL - A man convicted of robbing a Korean War veteran faces up to 40 years in prison.
21-year-old Quayshaun Heath will serve at least 10 years for the 2011 hold-up.
The State Attorney’s Office says Heath and another person robbed 78-year-old Clyde Tompkins, who was picking up his mail at his apartment complex. At gunpoint, Heath took Tompkins’ car keys and $12 in cash and drove away in his car.
Jacksonville Police stopped the stolen car about three hours later. In the street nearby, they found the gun used in the robbery.
Heath was convicted last month of Armed Robbery and Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon. He has previous convictions for Dealing in Stolen Property and Giving False Verification of Ownership of Pawned Items.
