Man gets at least four month in prison after botched attempted robbery

Local News

A man charged in a bizarre attempted robbery will face time in prison.

Today, a judge sentenced Michael Rodriguez-Santiago to 4-23.5 months in Erie County Prison.  He pleaded guilty to burglary in April. 

Police say Rodriguez-Santiago got stuck in the ductwork of a Dollar General after he squeezed in, attempting to rob the store.  A manager at the Dollar General in the 700 block of East Avenue called police after hearing someone in the ceiling of the store.  

The incident happened in January.  This sentence will run concurrent to a previous sentence, of 1-23 months, he received in a separate case.
