Man Pleads Guilty to Robbery After Escaping WBI and Stealing a Vehicle

By  | 

A man pled guilty to robbery this morning in Casper after escaping from Wyoming Behavioral Institute, threatening to kill a man, stealing a car and then proceeding to lock the keys in the stolen car this past summer.

Reports show 36 year old Jason Billings in May devised a plan and made multiple attempts to escape from WBI care.

After successfully escaping, according to reports, Billings rushed a man, told him he had killed two others and he would be the third and then stole his vehicle.

Reports continue to show Billings drove to the Eastgate Travel Plaza to gas up the vehicle.

When police located Billings and the stolen vehicle at the gas station Billings locked the keys in the car and he confessed to the robbery.

He told police he was on the run and cutting ties with his family and began writing an apology to the individuals involved.

Court papers also said Billings was found by police carrying a plastic bag with a bottle of water, an open package of socks, a plastic spoon, a notepad from the Holiday Inn, a pen, a marker and a green apple.

As part of his guilty plea, he will serve a three year probationary sentence.
