HONOLULU (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to holding up a Kauai pharmacy with a BB gun and stealing thousands of prescription painkiller pills is being sentenced.
Walter Mills is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court in Honolulu on Tuesday.
According to a plea agreement, he entered Kapaa Pharmacy last year wearing a mask and carrying a BB gun that looked like a real firearm. The court document says he pointed the BB gun at the pharmacist and stole nearly 2,000 pills of Oxycontin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine and methadone.
He was arrested several days later after he got into a minor accident while driving a rented van.
Mills faces a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000 and a term of supervised release.
