PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A Gardiner man has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for robbing a Bridgton pharmacy of prescription painkillers on Thanksgiving in 2013.

Robert Richard was also sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Portland to three years of probation and ordered to pay more than $138 in restitution to the Rite Aid store.

Prosecutors say the 26-year-old Richard walked into the store on Nov. 28, 2013 dressed in a dark, hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, sunglasses and a bandanna and gave the pharmacist a note saying, “All your oxycodone now!” After being given the medication, he fled in a car with a concealed license plate.

Richard pleaded guilty to the robbery in October.
