Arthur Brown Pleads Not Guilty To Liquor Store And Computer Robberies
A Casper man is denying he played a role in an armed robbery at a liquor store and a separate theft.
Twenty-year-old Arthur Brown has pleaded not guilty to charges of aggravated robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, and grand larceny.
Police say in April, Brown and 20-year-old Shannon Mares robbed Moonlight Liquor on East 12th Street at gunpoint, then went to 30-year-old Pete White’s home a few blocks away, where they were given a change of clothing and a ride home.
One week later, prosecutors say brown stole a $1,200 laptop computer from Best Buy.
Police arrested him a short time later.
Eventually, investigators say he and Mares admitted to their roles in the robbery and said White gave them a handgun to be used in the liquor store robbery.
Brown is being held on $50,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face between five-to-25 years in prison on the aggravated robbery and conspiracy charges if convicted.
Meanwhile, White entered into a plea deal on a conspiracy charge, and is waiting to be sentenced.
Mares is still awaiting trial.
