A man was sentenced Wednesday to nearly six years in prison after an Astoria man was robbed at gunpoint in his home.
Michael Todd Warner, 41, originally was indicted in June on charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, unlawful use of a weapon, felon in possession of a firearm, first-degree aggravated theft, second-degree criminal mischief, pointing a firearm at another and menacing.
He pleaded no contest Wednesday to attempt to commit a class A felony and the other charges were dropped as part of a deal with the Clatsop County District Attorney’s Office.
Sergio Cervantes Arreguin had returned to his home on Alameda Avenue in June and found a strange man inside. Warner pointed a semi-automatic handgun directly at Arreguin before he ran to a nearby restaurant and called police.
After searching the house and setting up a perimeter, police were unable to find Warner. About four hours later, a Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office deputy located Warner, who fit the description of the suspect, near the New Youngs Bay Bridge. He was found in possession of the stolen handgun.
Warner also agreed to pay $1,000 in restitution as part of the plea deal.
