BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — A guy who robbed a Dollar General will die in prison.
A jury found Tracy Wright, 48, guilty of aggravated robbery and theft of property Thursday, Nov. 7.
Wright robbed a Dollar General during November 2018. An employee told police he was armed with a gun, but it was a toy gun. Wright also left behind a purple lunchbox that was collected as evidence, according to court records.
Two days after the robbery, Wright stole a gold, 2001 Dodge Dakota from a used car lot. He took it on a test drive and failed to return it, the documents state.
He was located and arrested Nov. 14, 2018.
He is a habitual offender with previous felony convictions. This weighed into the life sentence.
