TROY — Jeremy Miller, 32, of Huber Heights, pleaded guilty to an amended charge of third degree felony robbery and fifth degree felony receiving stolen property by a bill of information for his role in the Abbey Credit Union in Troy robbery on Dec. 4.
Miller was arraigned on the new charges as part of a plea agreement with state prosecutors to waive the merger of the two charges and will serve consecutive sentences on each count. He could serve up to four years in prison for the robbery charge and up to 12 months on the receiving stolen property charge.
Miller was originally charged with first degree felony complicity to aggravated robbery. Judge Pratt ordered Miller to complete an expedited pre-sentencing investigation. His sentencing hearing was tentatively scheduled for June 13.
Miller’s half brother Justin Higbee allegedly robbed the Abbey Credit Union Bank on Dec. 4. Miller assisted by driving the getaway car from the scene. Higbee allegedly entered the credit union on Friday and handed a note to a teller indicating he was armed and demanded money.
Higbee entered a plea of guilty for first degree felony robbery last week.
Later that evening, Higbee was arrested during a drug trafficking stop in Butler Township at the Red Roof Inn on Miller Lane. Miller also was arrested in the 7300 block of Colegrove Drive in Huber Heights on an unrelated charge.
The car and clothing related to the robbery were recovered at the Huber Heights residence.
The Troy Police Department also issued a search warrant at the Red Roof Inn on Miller Lane and recovered several thousand dollars of the stolen money.
