Carbondale Teen Sentenced in Mill St. Armed Robbery

Carbondale Police
Peter Greenwood

A Carbondale teenager has been sentenced to nine years in prison after he pleaded guilty to armed robbery.

The Jackson County State's Attorney says 19-year-old Peter Greenwood was also ordered to pay restitution to the victim and was recommended for placement in substance abuse treatment.

The charge against Greenwood came from a January incident in which he and another man robbed two men at gunpoint and knifepoint in a parking lot along Mill Street in Carbondale.

Greenwood and his accomplice took the victim’s cell phone and wallet, and police believe one of them later used the victim’s cell phone to take money from the victim’s CashApp account.
