Trenton man gets 30 years for crime spree

TRENTON — Jeffrey Garrett was sentenced to 30 years in prison Thursday for a crime spree in 2011 on the day of the Trenton earthquake in 2011.
Garrett, 34, also has to pay more than $380,000 in restitution after pleading guilty to charges relating to two armed bank robberies, carjacking, and discharging a firearm during a crime of violence.
Garrett, 34, robbed the Chase Bank in Hamilton on Nov. 10, 2010, handing the teller a note that said, “I have a gun, give me all the fifty and hundred dollar bills.”
According to court records, Garrett displayed a black handgun before fleeing with the cash. Surveillance cameras revealed clear images of Garrett, and FBI agents determined that Garrett used his own Visa card at the bank’s ATM just moments before the robbery.
