The Juneau man charged with robbing a downtown jewelry store at gunpoint March 29 changed his plea to guilty Tuesday in Juneau Superior Court.
Nathan Block pleaded guilty before Judge Philip Pallenberg to first-degree robbery, a class ‘A’ felony. In return, the state dismissed a charge of first-degree theft, although Block admits to the conduct.
The charges involve Block pointing a handgun at a clerk in Lambros Goldsmith on Franklin Street, tying her up, and taking items from the store. Block was apprehended roughly five hours later.
