Written by 

Brian Anthony Edwards, a junior a Western Carolina University, was convicted of robbery and sentenced to a maximum of 21 months in a North Carolina prison on Jan. 3.

Edwards, a 21-year-old Hendersonville native, pleaded guilty to “common law robbery” after holding up the North Carolina State Employee’s Credit Union on the morning of Dec. 14.

The WCU student attempted to conceal his identity and carried a toy gun into the credit union, demanding money. Less than two hours later, Edwards was arrested and the money and evidence was recovered from his car.

The WCU officials locked down the campus following the robbery.
