KALISPELL — A Montana man was sentenced to 10 years in prison with five years suspended for holding a pharmacist at gunpoint.

The Flathead Beacon reports Thomas Devine was sentenced last week after pleading no contest in April to criminal endangerment.

Court documents say Devine approached the victim outside a Lakeside pharmacy and ordered the man to get inside his truck in October 2017.

He then pulled out a brown paper bag with a loaded gun and told the pharmacist that he needed a prescription filled.
