A Georgia man must serve prison time for robbing a loan store in Front Royal in August 2018.
Judge William W. Sharp sentenced Jhon Jario Lopez, also known as Jhon Jario Lopez-Freyde, 23, of Norcross, Georgia, to 15 years in a state penitentiary for committing one count of robbery. The judge suspended 10 years of the sentence and ordered Lopez to complete three years of supervised probation upon release. The judge ordered Lopez to pay $1,547.54 in restitution.
Lopez faces sentencing on similar charges in Madison and Fairfax counties later this week.
Front Royal police accused Lopez of robbing Advance America Cash Advance, 232 Remount Road, on Aug. 2, 2018. Winchester police also accused Lopez at the time of robbing Allied Cash Advance on Weems Lane in the city about an hour before the Front Royal incident.
Officers with the Warrenton Police Department eventually found Lopez and took the suspect into custody the evening of Aug. 2, 2018, at Advance America’s Warrenton location.
Online court records show Lopez has no charges in Winchester. However, Lopez stands charged in Madison County Circuit Court with one count of attempted robbery that authorities say occurred on July 27, 2018. Lopez was arrested Aug. 6, 2018. Lopez’ next hearing in the court is scheduled for Wednesday.
Fairfax County police arrested Lopez on Aug. 2, 2018, and charged him with robbery, according to online records for the Fairfax County General District Court. Police accused Lopez of committing robbery in the county on July 28, 2018. A district court judge certified the case to a grand jury in mid-February. Lopez faces sentencing on the robbery charge on Friday.
