Greenwich man guilty of robbery

Accomplices accepted plea deals earlier this year.

Testimony from co-defendants and a 16-year-old victim of a home invasion sealed the fate of a Greenwich man who orchestrated the robbery of a drug dealer earlier this year.

 

   A Huron County jury found Jeremy Sax, 34, guilty of robbery, aggravated burglary and tampering with evidence after a three-day trial ended Thursday.

 

   Sax stormed a Fitchville Township home March 2 with co-defendant Larry Thornsberry, 36, while the victim was talking to his ex-girlfriend. The two assaulted the victim, took $400 and a laptop, and fled the scene.

 

   The getaway driver, Treva Campbell, 30, took off from the scene and ditched the weapon — a BB gun with the tip removed, authorities said. Huron County detectives later found the weapon in a creek, after a co-defendant told them where it was located.

 

   Campbell, Sax’s half-sister, and Thornsberry both accepted plea agreements earlier this year, with the promise their cooperation in Sax’s trial would be considered in their sentencing hearings. Those hearings are scheduled for later this month.

 

   “We had some difficulty in the case, in that this was the robbery of another drug dealer,” Huron County prosecutor Russ Leffler said.

 

   The victim refused to testify, bucking attempts by deputies to serve him with subpoenas. His whereabouts are currently unknown.

 

   Testimony from a 16-year-old boy who was at the home during the robbery helped solidify the story, Leffler said.

 

   “It gave the jury the option to see it wasn’t just the drug dealer that was the victim,” he said.

 

   Campbell and Thornsberry didn’t seem to share all the details about the robbery, but they did what they were supposed to do when they took the stand, Leffler said.

 

   Huron County Common Pleas Court Judge James Conway will determine the sentence. Sax could face up to 24 years in prison if he receives the maximum penalty.

This guy is a class A scum bag. I say lock him up with a big black cell mate. That should help him with his attitude.

Why black?

I'm wondering what you think will happen to him?

Wish he would break into my house because either Smith or Wesson would do some talking to this punk! Throw the key away too. Is he supposed to be some kind of skinhead or something?

I guess he would be one of your friends then

That would be fun, because he was committing his crime with an AIR SOFT PISTOL with the tip broke off "to make it appear more real" (from the Norwalk Reflector).

Nothing says "Don't hire me" quite like a neck tattoo.

Thornsberry...another hated name. Reasons why stereo-types occur. We need harsh treatment for trash.

I would have thought a drug dealer robbing another drug dealer would have a real gun? What's the world coming too anyway : )
