Drugstore robbery driver pleads guilty

The man who police said was the getaway driver during a Franklin pharmacy robbery in 2013 pleaded guilty and could face up to four years in prison.

Devan Twitchell, 21, 1310 N. Somerset Ave., Indianapolis, pleaded guilty to aiding in robbery, a felony.

Police said he was one of three men who robbed Henderson Drugs in downtown Franklin more than two years ago. Davonte Hubbard, 919 Lynn St., Indianapolis, was sentenced to 10 years in prison last year after pleading guilty to a charge of robbery with a deadly weapon.

A third man, Hayden Glass, of Indianapolis, died of a drug overdose one day after the robbery.

On May 16, 2013, police said Hubbard and Glass walked into the drugstore with Airsoft pellet guns, threatened employees at gunpoint and stole drugs.

After the men got the drugs and ran out of Henderson Drugs, a pharmacist grabbed his own handgun, chased them and shot at them. The two men got into a minivan that was parked by a nearby church and the vehicle sped off.

Twitchell drove the getaway vehicle, police said.

Under the terms of an agreement with the prosecutor’s office, Twitchell would join a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program and is facing four years in prison.

His sentencing is set for Aug. 12.
