Wilmington man pleaded guilty to pharmacy robberies

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) –- A Wilmington man will spend up to 18 years in prison after pleading guilty to several different charges.

Monday, Jason Christopher Stash pleaded guilty to a string of pharmacy robberies. The District Attorney’s Office says the 35-year-old committed six robberies which happened between April 2014 and January 2015.

Investigators say Stash targeted Walgreens on Oleander Drive, King’s Pharmacy on South College Road, CVS on Oleander Drive, and Rite Aid on Shipyard Boulevard.

They say Stash threatened employees with what they think was a BB gun, and would then make them hand over prescription pills from the pharmacy area.

Officers arrested Stash at his home on Long Leaf Hills Drive January 8 after they say he robbed Rite Aid.

At his home, investigators say they found pills, bags, BB guns, and other evidence to link Stash to the crimes.

In court on Monday, he also pleaded guilty to trafficking opium by possession.
