One of the teenagers who broke into the Oasis Gas Station in Shingleton in April pled guilty on Monday morning in Alger County Circuit Court. Eighteen-year-old Ruben Sifuentes of Munising was charged with breaking and entering a building with intent.
On Sunday, April 28, Sifuentes and 17-year-old Brandon Monroe entered the gas station around 4 a.m. The store's owner, a military veteran, was still inside and saw the teens trying to steal money from an empty cash register. He confronted the two teens with a loaded gun. The teens fled, and the store owner called 911.
Monroe pled guilty in June. Both teens will be sentenced on August 16 at 10 a.m.
