Eau Claire (WQOW) - An armed robbery charge was filed Monday against the teenager accused of last week's robbery of a rural Eau Claire convenience store.
A judge set 17-year-old Jason Allen's bond at $50,000.
According to the criminal complaint, an acquaintance told police that he declined Allen's request to help him rob the Holiday Gas Station on Truax Lane.
That person told police Allen was upset because he was recently ripped off when he sold his Xbox, because the buyer gave him counterfeit money. He also said Allen indicated he waited in a snowbank for two hours until there were no customers at the gas station.
Investigators said Allen, armed with an apparent BB pistol, got away with more than $300 and also demanded some cookies.
Allen will return to court next week.
