FARMINGTON -- A 25-year-old man who police say held up three Clearfield food businesses at knifepoint has been charged with another robbery out of Layton.
The Davis County Attorney's Office filed in 2nd District Court on Monday a first-degree aggravated robbery charge against Nathaniel David Lantz.
Lantz appeared before Judge Michael G. Allphin on Monday for a pretrial conference hearing.
He already is charged with three counts of first-degree felony aggravated robbery, as well as two misdemeanors, in connection with the Clearfield robberies. He has pleaded not guilty to all those charges.
Another hearing is set for Aug. 9.
According to court documents, Lantz used a knife May 22 to rob Walgreens Drug Store of about $180 out of the cash register.
Lantz was arrested by Clearfield police June 9 and booked in Davis County Jail on $50,000 bail.
Earlier that day, police responded to a 911 call from McDonald's, 691 S. Main St., Clearfield. Officers spotted Lantz's car in the area behind the fast-food business and were able to pull him over on a traffic violation. An officer saw the knife on the floor of the vehicle.
Officers said they believe Lantz also is responsible for a June 6 robbery at Subway Sandwiches, 564 N. Main, Clearfield, and for a robbery May 30 at Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream, 435 N. Main St., Clearfield.
Because of the two previous robberies, police believed the suspect would return or could possibly be living in the area, and they had extra patrols there, officers said.
When officers searched Lantz's car, they found hoodie jackets they said he wore when he robbed the other two businesses.
