BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A Sangerville man who pulled off what prosecutors called one of the most violent pharmacy robberies they had ever seen in Maine has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison.

James Stile was also sentenced late last week in U.S. District Court in Bangor to five years of probation and ordered to pay more than $13,000 in restitution for the armed robbery of E.W. Moore and Sons pharmacy in Bingham in September 2011.

The 58-year-old Stile pleaded guilty in October.

Prosecutors say Stile threatened the owner and three employees with a sawed-off shotgun, then forced the employees and a customer to lie on the floor.

Stile forced the owner to fill a bag with prescription drugs, and bound everyone’s hands and feet with zip ties before fleeing in a minivan.
