VANCOUVER, Wash. -- A 29-year-old man was sentenced Friday in Clark County Superior Court to nine years in prison for a crime spree that included two bank robberies and a carjacking on a police chase from Hazel Dell, through Vancouver to Portland.
The Columbian reports ( ) Brent J. Woodall of Vancouver pleaded guilty to robbery, hit-and-run and eluding charges.
He apologized in court and said he had struggled with addiction but learned in jail it's possible to be happy while sober. The former body builder and personal trainer said he was glad no one was hurt during the June 20 spree.
He robbed banks in Hazel Dell and Vancouver and carjacked a vehicle and fled to Portland where police finally pinned him with a cruiser.
