Phillip Jones Admits To Robbing Convenience Store
A Casper man is now admitting to robbing a convenience store at knife-point.
Twenty-six year old Phillip Jones has pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated robbery.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in April, Jones used a knife to rob the Loaf 'N Jug store on North Center Street, and ended up getting $61.
He then tried to flee in a cab, but was caught a short time later.
One month prior to the robbery, Jones had been released from an Arizona prison.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than an eight-to-10 year prison sentence, and agreed not to press charges in another robbery case, that happened a few days prior to this one.
Jones is being held on $100,000 bond, and will be sentenced at a later date.
