ATLANTA — Two people involved in a string of armored truck robberies, including one in Marietta, will serve lengthy prison sentences.

After pleading guilty to armed robbery and firearms charges, Ashley Henderson has been sentenced to 75 years and Stacey Dooley has been sentenced to 40 years in federal prison for the six robberies, including one that left a courier dead in DeKalb County, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates.

“The sentencing of these two defendants closes one chapter on a disturbingly violent robbery crew that had all Atlanta area law enforcement on high alert back in 2010 and 2011,” Yates said.

The Marietta robbery involved a Dunbar Armored courier just after he made a cash pickup on October 7, 2010, at the Mex America Latino Services on South Marietta Parkway, officials said. Other robbery locations included Buford, Snellville, Stone Mountain, the Mall of Georgia and a Kroger in DeKalb County.

Officials said the pair worked with a number of people who served as lookouts and getaway drivers. Seven people have plead guilty for their roles in the robberies, including one who, according to Yates’ office, “unlawfully transferred a firearm knowing it would be used in a crime of violence.”

Officials say the six robberies involved more than $470,000.
