Casper Man to Serve Prison Time For Role in Liquor Store Robbery
A Casper man will serve prison time after admitting that he served as a lookout during an armed robbery.
Natrona County District Judge Catherine Wilking handed down an 8- to 10-year prison sentence for 20-year-old Shannon Mares on Thursday. In July, Mares entered a guilty plea to one count of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery.
Prosecutors say Mares served as a lookout while 20-year-old Arthur Brown robbed Moonlight Liquors back in April.
According to charging documents, a third man, 30-year-old Pete White, supplied an automatic handgun and clothing to both Brown and Mares for the heist. He also gave both men a ride home afterward.
Mares was also given a boot camp recommendation on Thursday. If he completes boot camp, Wilking said she would consider a sentence reduction.
