A man who stole an ATM from an Arkansas grocery market after ramming a stolen truck through the storefront last year was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday as part of a plea bargain.
Joshua Lamar Rigsby, 35, was arrested in connection with the theft of an ATM on April 28, 2017, from Sav-A-Lot grocery on College Hill Drive in Texarkana.
Police officers responding to an alarm at the business at approximately 4:45 a.m. discovered the the store had been struck multiple times with a pickup later determined to have been stolen from McLarty Ford in Texarkana, Texas, according to a probable cause affidavit.
In the debris, investigators found pieces of the truck, a black hat and a set of keys to a Lincoln which turned out to belong to Rigsby's wife. Officers were later able to identify Rigsby as the suspect.
Police estimated the loss at $5,000 for the machine and the cash inside it.
Rigsby pleaded guilty Monday to commercial burglary and theft of property, and a charge of felon in possession of a firearm was dropped.
He received a 10-year prison term on each of the two charges to be served concurrently. However, Rigsby won't begin serving the 10-year sentence until he has finished serving a six-year term for theft by receiving in a separate case.
According to the Arkansas Department of Correction website, Rigsby has at least 15 prior felony convictions in Arkansas
