On Aug. 15, Lebanon police observed Blevings driving a vehicle with an obstructed license plate. When officers attempted to stop him, Blevings fled at a high rate of speed, but then stopped, the prosecutor’s report said. Police searching the car found a gun under the passenger seat, as well as money and hospital scrubs clothing worn during the most recent robbery.

On Wednesday, Judge Robert Peeler sentenced Blevings on three counts of aggravated robbery, one count of possession of criminal tools and one count of improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle.
