Plea hearing scheduled for man charged in Marshfield robbery

Posted:
MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

A plea hearing has been scheduled for a man police say robbed a Walgreens pharmacy in Marshfield in June, where he stole drugs and money. Officials say he then ran into a nearby auto shop, where he eventually gave himself up.

31-year-old Dustin Fritz is facing two charges in federal court of robbery involving controlled substances and the use of a firearm to further a crime of violence.

Authorities say federal charges were necessary because of the value of the drugs.

Back in July, Fritz had pleaded not guilty. He was scheduled to head to trial early next week, but now a plea hearing has been set for Oct. 17.
