Bristol Twp Man Sentenced 5 to 10 years in Prison for May 2022 Smoke Shop Armed Robbery
A 66-year-old man was convicted last week, of committing the armed robbery of a Middletown Township smoke shop in May 2022.
Gerald Michael Majchrzak, of Bristol Township, was found guilty of robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, theft, and possession of a weapon following the 2-day trial before Common Pleas Judge Stephen A. Corr. He was sentenced by Corr to five to 10 years in state prison. His co-defendant, Timothy Allen Baker, 46, of Bensalem Township, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery and will be sentenced in October.
Middletown Township police were dispatched at 11:41 a.m. May 5, 2022, to the Infinity Smoke Shop, 1236 E Lincoln Highway, for an abandoned 911 call. Dispatchers were later advised that employees were reporting that the store had been robbed at gunpoint.
Officers arrived and identified the suspect as a white male with white hair, wearing a blue zip-up hooded sweatshirt with a blue medical style face mask and sunglasses. The store’s surveillance footage showed a male pulling a black handgun from his side and pointing it at two employees.
The male made off with $3,000, a cigarette lighter, two cartons of cigarettes and a pack of condoms. He walked across East Lincoln Highway, got into a silver Hyundai Elantra, and fled the area.
The investigation resulted in Majchrzak being identified as the male who committed the robbery and Baker as the getaway driver.
This case was investigated by Middletown Township Police Department, the Bensalem Township Police Department, and the FBI Bucks and Montgomery Safe Street Task Force. This case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Monica W. Furber.
