Jail sentence for Armstrong robbery

Woman sentenced to more than a year for her role in Valentine’s Day hold-up.

A woman who entered guilty pleas in connection to a convenience store robbery in Armstrong is staying in jail.

Angelina Maria Donatucci-Urlacher, born in 1990, entered guilty pleas to counts of robbery and disguising her face with the intent to commit an offence in connection with an incident at the Armstrong 7-Eleven just after midnight on Valentine’s Day.

She was sentenced to 481 days in jail for the robbery and another year, to be served concurrent, on the second count.

A woman entered the store that morning, produced a knife and stole an undisclosed amount of money and merchandise. She fled in a car and was arrested a short distance away in a car matching the description. Two men in the car were arrested with her. Their matters in the incident are still before the courts.

Donatucci-Urlacher will be placed on three years probation at the end of her sentence and was given a 10-year firearms prohibition on both counts.
