Escambia Man Faces Life For Armed Robberies

June 10, 2014

An Escambia County man faces up to life in prison after being convicted of two convenience store robberies.

Zethaniah Alexander Faulk, 39, was convicted by an Escambia County jury of two counts of armed robbery with a firearm, two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and two counts of a aggravated assault with a firearm.

The charges stemmed from two Circle K robberies which occurred approximately one hour apart on May 15, 2013. Faulk was masked and carried a firearm during both robberies. He utilized the firearm to batter the clerks from each store before stealing  money and other items. He was identified with the help of a Crime Stoppers tip and the fact that a distinctive tattoo was matched to his person.

Circuit Judge Terry Terrell scheduled sentencing for July 14. Prosecutors  will seek to sentence Zethaniah Faulk as a habitual felony offender and a prison releasee reoffender. Faulk faces a life sentence for these convictions.

    I wouldn’t exactly call him a menace, however he does need to be held accountable for the crimes he committed. In my opinion, menaces are the ones still on the streets of Pensacola that are directly responsible for the numerous unsolved murders here in escambia county for the past couple of years?????

    Yes yes yes life in prison for you, a 39 year old menace to society, a cancer that needs to be removed…seem like rough callous words. It is nothing compared to the deadly callous way you chose to treat innocent people trying to earn a meager living at best in a convenience store. It is my hope that you live a long long time, staring at the world from a steel cage
