ORLANDO, Fla. (TND) — A man who has been convicted of felonies 19 times in state court — and he’s only 37 years old — is heading off to federal prison.

Terrell Robinson had pleaded guilty in August to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession with the intent to distribute controlled substances.

The feds cited court documents saying police saw his “vehicle as he engaged in a hand-to-hand drug transaction at a gas station. When they activated their lights and sirens, Robinson fled and escaped onto Route 408” around Orlando, Fla.

Unmarked cars followed Robinson and authorities arrested him when he stopped at another gas station.

They said he was busted with “a firearm, ammunition, drug distribution materials, cash, baggies, scales, and various controlled substances such as fentanyl, methamphetamine, and cocaine.”

For that, Robinson got 15 years in prison, and he’ll have to give up his “firearm, ammunition, and cash which were used in the offense and were proceeds of the offense.”
