(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A 24-year-old man was sentenced to 12 years for robbing the Garfield 66 Station in St. Joseph.

Skylar Grant Harrison pleaded guilty to robbery in the first degree.

Judge Patrick K. Robb handed down the sentence on Monday.

Harrison robbed the gas station at 1209 Garfield on November 2, 2019 around 7:30 a.m.

The prosecutor's office said Harrison was armed with a Smith and Wesson 9mm pistol. He fired a shot during the robbery, but no one was injured.

Prosecuting Attorney Ron Holliday explained that Harrison would have to serve a minimum of 85 percent of his sentence before he can be considered for parole because the offense is considered a "dangerous felony" in Missouri.

Holliday said Harrison was previously convicted of burglary and receiving stolen property in Nodaway County in 2014.

Tomorrow we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will start to move away from the area on Saturday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s and watch for our next chance for rain on Sunday.
