Berwick Man To Spend Up To 20 Years In Prison For Snyder County Robbery

A Columbia County man accused of pistol-whipping the owner of a coin shop and stealing about $75,000 in cash, gold bars, and jewelry was sentenced to prison. Forty-year-old David Bobe from Berwick was sentenced Monday to 10 to 20 years in prison. He pleaded no contest in February to the violent robbery at Sterner's Coin Shop in Shamokin Dam which happened back in 2017. The Snyder County district attorney says the sentence will run consecutively to a 6 to 15 year sentence Bobe received for a different robbery in Columbia County. The DA says Bobe was on parole for that crime when he robbed the coin shop in Shamokin Dam. A second man, 39-year-old Michael Rodenizer from Beaver Springs, already pleaded guilty to the coin shop robbery. He is set to be sentenced later this month.
