Milton man sentenced to jail for robbery
HUNTINGTON — A Milton man was sentenced to prison in December after a 2017 drug deal and later robbery landed him in prison.
Scott Dupuie II, 27, of Milton, pleaded guilty in Cabell Circuit Judge Gregory Howard’s courtroom to attempt to commit a felony and burglary. Howard sentenced him to serve two to 13 years in prison.
Dupuie, Allison Renee Gibson, 18, of Huntington, and Sydney Montana McGraw, 19, of Ona, were all arrested in January 2017 and later indicted for attempt to commit a felony and conspiracy.
Prior to his arrest, Dupuie was accused of fleeing from Milton Police as they arrested another man. A confidential police informant later contacted Milton police that Dupuie sent them a text about selling heroin. The informant agreed to buy heroin from Dupuie on 3rd Street in Milton, complaints state, with police posted to await Dupuie’s arrival.
No heroin deal was made, but the white car carrying Dupuie was watched driving toward 2nd Street and intercepted by officers. Two females, identified as Gibson, the driver, and McGraw, were in the front seats of the vehicle.
Dupuie rode in the back seat where two half-gram bindles of heroin and $370 cash in a plastic baggie were found, complaints state. The cellphone Dupuie had used belonged to McGraw.
After his release from prison on those charges, Dupuie was arrested for burglary after breaking into a home in the 200 block of 1st Street in Culloden, to which he admitted before Howard.
