A federal judge on Thursday sentenced a 29-year-old Philadelphia man to 59½ years in prison for a violent armed robbery spree in 2014.


Cory D. Foster was convicted by a jury last May of  committing three armed robberies of gas station convenience stores in Bucks, Montgomery, and Chester Counties and stealing a car at gunpoint during one robbery. Foster was on parole during the spree and had been previously convicted of armed robbery, a strong-arm robbery and beating, and a residential burglary, according to the prosecutor’s sentencing memorandum.

He and another man were arrested in February 2015 in Delaware in possession of the carjacked vehicle and a handgun. As a result of that arrest, he was convicted of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and was sentenced in Delaware to 10 years in prison. Foster must first serve the 10 years of that sentence and then at least 57 years of the sentence imposed Thursday in Philadelphia by U.S. District Court Judge Mark A. Kearney.





Foster and an unidentified accomplice robbed gas station in Trevose on Nov. 18, 2014, taking $1,000 in cash and merchandise and a wallet from an employee before fleeing in a car driven by another unidentified person.

On Dec. 2, 2014, the trio robbed a gas station in Plymouth Meeting and took $700 in cash and $2,400 cigarettes.

Five days later, Foster and an accomplice hit a gas station in Phoenixville and stole nearly $1,800 cash and more than $4,000 in cigarettes and cigars. During the robbery, Foster assaulted an employee, breaking his orbital eye socket. Foster and his accomplice then stole a customer’s car at gunpoint.
