Man Sentenced Following December 2014 Aggravated Robbery

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - One man will be spending the rest of his life behind bars after being found guilty.

Joel Rubio, 44, was found guilty on Friday of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and sentenced to 99 years behind bars.

Back in December 2014, Rubio, and another man, George Rodriguez-Blanco, 35, walked into the Walmart on JBS Parkway.

According to the report, the men put several items including sporting goods and electronics in a bag and left without paying for the items.

Police say an employee later confronted the men and that's when they pulled out a knife.

The men fled the scene but were later found.

No word if Rodriguez-Blanco has gone to trial.
