Merrill man pleads no contest to armed robbery

LINCOLN COUNTY (WAOW) -- One of six people charged in the armed robbery of a Merrill gas station enters a no contest plea.

Maurice Bell of Merrill admitted during the plea hearing the state had enough evidence to prove he participated in the robbery.

In December, two masked men entered the Holiday gas station on North Center Avenue. Police say they pointed what appeared to be a gun at the cashier and demanded money. The men struck the cashier with the butt of the gun and fled with $2,000 in cash and merchandise.

Bell faces up to 40 years in prison.
