Joshua Logan Myers, 19, robbed two drivers for a medical pot delivery service in the parking lot of the San Luis Obispo Costco on Dec. 11, 2017. Myers snatched about one pound of marijuana valued at $2,500, according to the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office.

Last November, a San Luis Obispo jury convicted Myers of second-degree felony robbery, personal use of a firearm by a gang member during a robbery and making criminal threats. Myers faced a maximum prison sentence of 16 years and four months.

Judge Matthew Guerrero opted to sentence him to 13 years and eight months behind bars. Meanwhile, Myers has a pending robbery case in Santa Maria that includes a gang enhancement, according to the district attorney’s office.

Myers is the younger brother of Dystiny Myers, the runaway Santa Maria teen who was the victim of a brutal 2010 murder in SLO County. The district attorney’s office issued a statement made by Deputy DA Lindsey Bittner on Joshua Myers’ conviction in SLO County, though it made no mention of the defendant’s relation to the slain teen.

“I am grateful for the hard work and diligence of the jury for their verdicts and for the bravery and fortitude of the victims and witnesses who testified at trial,” said Bittner, who prosecuted the case. “This verdict sends a strong message to gang members who commit violent crimes while armed with a firearm that they will be held accountable for their actions.”

Who’s paying $2,500.00 a pound?

Probably right where this kid belongs. Sad to throw your life away at such a young age.

Wow, $182.93 a year or .52 cents a day. He won’t be inducted into the criminal hall of fame anytime in the future.

This situation is not cool. But, the white collar crooks, just two of them, Miller of Hurst Financial and Kelly gearhead stole over $500 million and got lighter sentences than this poor kid. The money they stole from friends, family, strangers, churches and others left over 1200 people devastated.

And there were many more crooks just like them around here. And just like them most were exposed by CCN first!

White collar crooks should be hung upside down in the city square so we can beat them to death, just like they did to Mussolini.
