Brothers Sentenced For Md. Pharmacy Heists

BALTIMORE (AP) — Two brothers are going to federal prison for conspiring to distribute oxycodone they got from string of drugstore robberies in western Maryland and Baltimore County in 2009.

Dwight Fulton, 23, of Hagerstown and Elvin Fulton, 21, of Waynesboro, Pa., were sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

According to their plea agreements, they were involved together in the robbery of a Towson pharmacy and the attempted robbery of a Timonium drugstore. Elvin also was involved in drugstore robberies in Hagerstown and Smithsburg, and Dwight was involved in other drugstore robberies in those towns.

Dwight got a 10-year prison sentence. Elvin was sentenced to seven years and three months.

Another defendant, Luis Maldonado, is serving nearly four years for robbing a Hagerstown bank with Dwight Fulton.
