Brian Boler, 34, of Carbondale was sentenced to seven years in the Illinois Department of Corrections for a robbery at the Cash Store in Carbondale.
According to Carr, on September 23, Boler entered the Cash Store with his hand in his pocket as if he was armed and handed a bag to the employee which had: “give me the money or I’ll shoot” written on the bag.
