The Juneau man who robbed a local jewelry store at gunpoint on Tuesday was arraigned in Juneau Superior Court at 1:15 p.m. today before Judge Thomas Nave on multiple charges.
Nathan Block, 27, faces charges of robbery in the first degree, a Class A Felony which is punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $250,000 in fines. A clerk at the court expects multiple other charges to be included.
Block was arrested at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the 600 block of West Willoughby Ave., roughly five hours after he pointed a gun at a clerk in the south Franklin St. jewelry store, Lambros Goldsmith. According to reports, he tied her up and took items from the store.
