  1. Hi it,s me Shawn Samuel. Yes I robbed those pharmacies in 2011 and served my time for it. At the time i was a herion addict and i made very stupid decisions all for the next fix. While inside I used my time wisely, got treatment and learned how to play music. I am now employed an slowly trying to get my life back on track legitimate/Law abiding. Many apologies  to all the people I affected while committing these reckless crimes.
