A man who was charged in Washington County Court for the robberies of a couple of Nashville pharmacies this past summer was sentenced to five years in prison.
Herman Sims, 41, of Pinckneyville pleaded guilty to a Class 3 felony charge of unlawful possession of methamphetamine. As part of plea negotiations, two counts of Class 2 felony burglary charges and three misdemeanor counts of theft were dismissed.
Sims was charged in July after investigations pointed him in the early morning break-ins on June 18 and July 2 of both Doehring’s Pharmacy and the Nashville Pharmacy. Police said a male suspect had allegedly thrown a rock or brick through the glass to make entry inside the businesses. The suspect then took several hundred dollars worth of pseudoephedrine from each pharmacy.
Sims was also ordered to one year mandatory supervised release, fined $2,500 and ordered to pay restitution. He was credited with time served.
