TALLADEGA COUNTY -- A Sylacauga man was sentenced to 15 years in prison this week after having previously pleaded guilty to robbery in the third degree. 

Circuit Judge Chad Woodruff gave Roger Lewis Stone, 44, 15 years, split, 24 months in prison followed by 24 months probation. A charge of robbery in the first degree was dismissed after Stone pleaded guilty to the lesser charge, according to Assistant District Attorney Jake Argo.

Stone was arrested in March 2018 after calling the Domino’s Pizza in Sylacauga and ordering two large pizzas and two 2-liter soft drinks. 

When the delivery driver arrived at the address on Cooperfield Circle, where the pizzas had been ordered, he told Talladega County sheriff’s deputies, he saw Stone go back into the house briefly, then come back out wearing a hooded sweatshirt with his hand in the pocket, as if holding a weapon. He then ordered the driver to set down the drinks and the pizzas, then walk slowly back to his car, which the driver did.

The Sheriff’s Office began its investigation at the house where the pizzas had been ordered, which is also where Stone lived. Stone and some of his friends were actually still eating the pizza when the deputies arrived.
