A Kirkland, Arizona resident involved in a Kingman home invasion robbery has entered a plea agreement that will send him to the Arizona Department of Corrections.

Corey Thomas, 26, pled guilty Friday to armed robbery.

Kingman police said Thomas and two unidentified co-defendants forced their way into a home in the 2300 block of Comanche Drive at about midnight on Oct. 2, last year. Deputy police chief Rusty Cooper said the invaders confronted seven occupants of the home with weapons and demanded money, cellphones and anything of value. 

A safe was carried from the home but dropped outside as the suspects fled the scene when they heard police sirens. No one was hurt in the robbery. 

Thomas was apprehended two weeks later but the other suspects were never identified. 

Thomas also pled guilty to an unrelated drive by shooting. Authorities said shots were fired at a vehicle during a confrontation a year ago but no one was injured.

Terms of the deal require Mohave County Superior Court Judge Derek Carlisle to impose a prison term between 8 and 9 years at a March 8 sentencing hearing.
