Bramlett, Jr., said. According to the DA’s office, the woman was able to drive away and found help from an officer at a nearby gas station where she stopped and asked for help. Officers said they were able to identify Ball, using surveillance footage from the casino and his cell phone tower location from the night of the incident. The incident took place on September 18, 2017. On August 19, 2019, Thomas Ball pleaded guilty to armed robbery and was sentenced to 25 years in prison without the possibility of parole.
