Macon – A Macon man pleaded guilty Thursday to armed robbery in an Aug. 5, 2017, heist at X-Mart, 2025 Emery Highway.
Russell Scott Frost, 31, was sentenced to 15 years, 10 of them in prison, during a hearing in Bibb County Superior Court.
If the case had gone to trial, Chief Assistant District Attorney Nancy Scott Malcor would have presented evidence showing:
A man demanded money from a clerk at the store just before 6 a.m. while holding a knife. The clerk emptied the cash register, giving the man money and the man left.
The man, later identified as Frost, was given entry to the store by another employee – his wife, 24-year-old Whitney Taylor Frost. An armed robbery charge against Whitney Frost still is pending.
Russell Frost has a history of prior theft, entering auto and drug convictions in Carroll County dating back to 2004.
Speaking after the hearing, Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney David Cooke said, “Mr. Frost has a habit of taking what doesn’t belong to him. This time, it’s going to cost him a decade of his life behind bars.”
