Robbers sent to prison

Two men who pleaded guilty to charges in connection with a robbery last December have both been sent to prison.

Eric Gambill, 18, was sentenced last week to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree robbery. His accomplice, Rodney Clark, 20, was sentenced in April to 16 years in prison. Clark had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit a forcible felony, aiding and abetting assautl while participating in a felony and aiding and abetting fourth-degree theft.

The charges came from a Dec. 11, 2011, incident at the Liquor and Tobacco Outlet, 902 First Ave. N.

Gambill, according to Webster County Attorney Ricki Osborn, went to the store and demanded money from the clerk. Osborn said Gambill was pretending to have a weapon under his jacket.

After getting the money, Gambill got into a car, driven by Clark, and both left the scene.

A Fort Dodge police officer arrested the suspects a few minutes after the robbery.
