FARMINGTON -- Two Layton men, who police said were involved in robbing a Chevron gas station to buy an Xbox, entered not guilty pleas to robbery charges.
Dustin Jack Ferguson, 18, and Timothy David Thomasson, 21, each entered the plea Thursday in 2nd District Court before Judge Thomas L. Kay. Each is charged with one count of robbery, a second-degree felony.
Kay set a hearing for Ferguson on Feb. 16 and for Thomasson on Feb. 23. Thomasson has been released from Davis County Jail on $2,500 bail. Ferguson is being held on $10,000 bail.
Police said Ferguson went into the Chevron Station convenience store at 1716 S. Main St. in Clearfield on Jan. 17. The male clerk told police that a man had entered the convenience store, threatened that he had a gun and demanded money.
Ferguson left the convenience store and ran to a car that was in a nearby school parking lot, police said.
He was arrested Jan. 21.
Thomasson, who police say was the driver of the car, was arrested Jan. 25.
Ferguson told officers he took the money to buy an Xbox.
