A Nebraska man has been placed on three years’ probation and ordered to pay $907 in restitution for his part in a bogus robbery at a Rosalie convenience store in August last year.
U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg has announced the sentence Magistrate Judge Thomas Thalken imposed on 29-year-old Steven Schulze of Laurel.
Schulze conspired with Michael Bambery to rob the Pony Express convenience story in Rosalie owned by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska. On August 15th of last year, Bambery entered the store and used a fake gun to hold up Schulze and take $907 from the cash register. Bambery later reneged on a promise to split the money with Schulze, according to federal prosecutors.
Bambery is scheduled to be sentenced on March 31st.
The FBI investigated the case.
