A Carlton resident went to prison this week for his involvement in the armed robbery of a Mahtowa convenience store last year.
Zachary Scott Moehrke, 19, will serve three years in prison with credit for 93 days served at the Carlton County Jail. He may also have to pay restitution, which had not been determined as of this week.
On Nov. 29, Moehrke used a handgun to rob TJ’s Country Store of an undisclosed amount of cash. In early February, Moehrke pleaded guilty to felony second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon as part of a plea agreement, which carried the mandatory three-year prison sentence.
His accomplice, 19-year-old Barnum resident Cameron Angell, was sentenced to one year at Northeast Regional Corrections Center and three years probation after he pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting second-degree aggravated robbery as part of a plea agreement.
