Knife-Wielding Cook Turned Robber Gets 6 to 12 Years

A cook who used a large butcher knife to rob a Morrisville convenience store was sentenced today to serve six to 12 years in prison.

The Sept. 10 armed robbery at a store called Puff and Stuff marked the second time in a decade that Auprel K. McLean had used cutlery in crime. In 2010 McLean was sentenced to serve two to four years in prison for using a kitchen knife to rob a Chinese food deliverer in Bristol Township.

McLean, 32, a father of three children ages 9 to 12, blamed his most recent robbery on stress and drug abuse, saying he was addicted to benzodiazepine and Percocet at the time. He said he was homeless when the crime occurred, but worked as a cook when he was drug-free.

McLean entered the store at 111 W. Bridge St. at about 6 p.m., wearing a white bandanna over his face. Brandishing the butcher knife, he demanded that the cashier open the register and “give me all of the cash,” court records said.

McLean ran off with $1,610. The cashier recognized him, telling police that McLean had been in the store about 90 minutes earlier and had bought a cigar. He later identified McLean in a photo lineup.

When arrested, McLean still had $977 of the stolen money. Bucks County Common Pleas Court Judge Raymond F. McHugh ordered him to repay the remaining $633 as restitution.

McHugh accepted a plea negotiation in which McLean pleaded guilty to robbery, aggravated assault and possession of an instrument of crime and received a six- to 12-year sentence in state prison.

McLean said he would use the time behind bars to become “a better decision-maker (and) learn from my mistakes.”

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Rose McHugh and investigated by the Morrisville Borough Police Department.

Approved for release by Thomas Gannon, Deputy District Attorney.
