 COLUMBUS, Ohio – A Westerville woman was sentenced in U.S. District Court today to 63 months in prison for robbery and attempted robbery.

Amy L. Hugo, 39, committed or attempted robbery at three gas stations and a store in Westerville and near Polaris Shopping Place. Hugo committed the robberies in a span of eight days in December 2019 and January 2020 using fake handguns at each of the robberies. 

According to court documents, Hugo robbed the BP Gas Station on W. Main Street in Westerville on New Years Eve 2019. Hugo used a fake handgun and demanded cash from the register, ultimately stealing $175.

On Jan. 2, 2020, Hugo stole $564 from the Play It Games, Movies & Music store on E. Powell Road in Lewis Center.

Hugo committed one robbery and attempted another on Jan. 7, 2020. During the first robbery, she stole $80 from the Duchess Shoppe Gas Station on Sancus Blvd. During the second event, she attempted to rob the Shell Gas Station on Polaris Parkway. The Shell store clerk thought Hugo’s gun looked fake, so the clerk locked herself in the gas station office and called 911. Hugo fled the store without stealing any money.

Hugo was charged by a Bill of Information in September 2020 and pleaded guilty in October 2020.

Vipal J. Patel, Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio; Chris Hoffman, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Cincinnati Division; Delaware County Sheriff Russell Martin; Westerville Police Chief Charles Chandler and Columbus Interim Police Chief Michael Woods announced the sentence imposed by U.S. District Court Judge Sarah D. Morrison. Assistant United States Attorney Salvador A. Dominguez is representing the United States in this case.
