      One of the two suspects who allegedly broke into the Oasis Gas Station was in Alger County Court on Monday morning.

      Brandon Monroe, 17, from Shingleton pled guilty to breaking and entering a building with intent. Just after four in the morning, Monroe and 18-year-old Ruben Sifuentes from Munising broke into the Oasis Gas Station, according to police.

      The robbery was stopped by the owner carrying his AR-15 rifle who caught them trying to steal money from the cash register. Sentencing for Monroe is scheduled for August 16. Sifuentes is scheduled to be in court on July 15 for a pretrial hearing.
