Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton, Jr. has sentenced Geoffrey Gaston (29, Orlando) to seven years in federal prison for committing five armed robberies between September 12 and October 12, 2022. The court also ordered Gaston to forfeit the $1,323 stolen as well as the $517 found in his vehicle upon his arrest that were proceeds of the offenses. Gaston entered a guilty plea on November 16, 2023. 

According to court documents, at 4:30 a.m. on September 12, 2022, Gaston, dressed in all-black and wearing gloves, entered a 7-Eleven store in Orlando and displayed what appeared to be a handgun. He demanded all the money in the cash drawer. Law enforcement later obtained evidence that Gaston had been searching the internet for “realistic toy gun” in the weeks leading up to this robbery and “.380,” “.22 pistol,” and “Saturday night special gun,” after this robbery.
