“Stolen Valor bandits” sentenced

| March 17, 2018 | 12 Comments

Last year, we talked briefly about the crooks that police called the “Stolen Valor bandits” because they wore Marine Corps uniforms while they robbed local San Diego businesses. They pleaded guilty last November and they were sentenced this week, according to Fox5;

David Magana, 28, pleaded guilty last year to 11 counts of robbery, conspiracy, auto theft and personal use of a firearm and was sentenced to 22 years behind bars.

Joseph Olmos, 25, pleaded guilty to eight robbery charges, conspiracy, auto theft and evading police and received 16 years in prison.

Judge Kathleen Lewis really whacked them good.

The robbery spree — dubbed the “Stolen Valor” bandit series because of the military gear worn in at least one of the holdups — happened between January and March 2016 at five establishments, including BBB Shoes in National City, Sombrero’s on West Main Street in El Cajon and Jamba Juice on College Grove Way. In two other robberies, the thieves got away with more than $800 and a person’s wallet, authorities said. In the March 3, 2016, robbery at Sombrero’s, one of the robbers fired a shot as the criminals made their getaway, Koerber said.

Magana was living in his car at the time of his arrest, so he was probably on someone’s list of homeless veterans.

    Oh. if only they could be turned over to some real, gritty, long-term, foul-tempered Marines….

    A girl can dream, can’t she? I’d sell tickets to it and donate it to a cat shelter.

    Talk about not conducting proper planning and targeting. These are about the lowest cash flow businesses out there.

    So happy to see these asshats go off to prison! At least they didn’t get some liberal asshole judge that would have given them probation! I hope they serve everyday of their sentence and get no time off for good behavior! Bite the pillow bitches! You will never be constapated ever again, your turds will just fall to the floor!

    “… one of the robbers fired a shot as the criminals made their getaway…”

    Nice reporting. And good on the judge for the sentencing.

    Amazing to hear how tough the sentences were in Commiefornia
    Just some wealth redistribution by some well dressed wealth redistribution technicians !/sarc
    This is the same state ( different city) where the illegal immigrant killed Kate Steinle and got zero prison time
    Surprising that these zeros got real punishment

    Did anyone else read “Mangina” as the last name?
