Fayetteville Man Attempts Armed Robbery of Gas Station, Gets 7 Years in Federal Prison
Raleigh– Robert J. Higdon, Jr., the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina, announces that United States District Judge James C. Dever, III, sentenced NOAH LEE ROWSEY, 19, of Fayetteville to 84 months’ imprisonment, followed by 5 years of supervised released and ordered him to pay $1,148.00 in restitution.
On January 22, 2019, ROWSEY pled guilty to Attempted Hobbs Act robbery and possession a firearm during a crime of violence.  On April 25, 2018, ROWSEY and an accomplice attempted to rob the Five Star BP Gas Station in Fayetteville.  ROWSEY brandished a firearm during the course of the robbery, and then fled the scene.  He was later arrested at his residence in Fayetteville.    
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.  Since 2017 the United States Department of Justice has reinvigorated the PSN program and has targeted violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime. 
That effort has been implemented through the Take Back North Carolina Initiative of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of North Carolina.  This initiative emphasizes the regional assignment of federal prosecutors to work with law enforcement and District Attorney’s Offices on a sustained basis in those communities to reduce the violence crime rate, drug trafficking, and crimes against law enforcement.
The investigation of this case was conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) and the Fayetteville Police Department. 
Assistant United States Attorney Robert J. Dodson prosecuted the case for the government.
