Two men dubbed "Butch and Sundance" in connection with a wave of armed robberies at Northern Virginia pharmacies last summer, were sentenced yesterday to long jail terms in Fairfax County General District Court.
Terry Lee Snow, of no fixed address was sentenced by presiding Judge Bruce F. Bach to 35 years in prison for the armed robberies of four Northern Virginia drug stores in Arlington, Alexandria and Fairfax County -- and the robbery of a Fairfax County home.
Bach sentenced Snow to serve another 10 years for the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Snow's parole on a heroin conviction five years ago also was revoked, placing his total sentence at 50 years.
Wilbert Lee, 29, of 1220 12th St. NW, was given a 20-year sentence for two armed robbery convictions.
A third man, 28-year-old Calvin Fulmer of Falls Church, pleaded guilty last October to the July 18 robbery of the Boulevard Medical Center in Fairfax County and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
That robbery was one of the 11 holdups attributed to the trio that began last April. About $7,000 in morphine-based drugs were stolen in the holdups, according to police.
In each case, victims said the robbers behaved "in a calm and professional manner" as they emptied each pharmacy's cash box and asked for each drug by name.
