Centralia Man Draws Six Year Prison Term On Attempted Armed Robbery Charge
Shumate was arrested after a foiled armed robbery attempted at the Centralia Food Mart on East 15th Street in Centralia last January. Shumate admitted holding a knife to the throat of a clerk and demanding money. However, the holdup was foiled when a customer pulled Shumate off the clerk. A scuffle ensued, with Shumate eventually fleeing but leaving the knife and one of his shoes behind. Another customer than chased Shumate down and held him on the ground until police arrived.
Once Shumate is released from prison, he will have to complete two years of mandatory supervised release. As part of the plea two counts of aggravated battery were dropped.
