A Plover man has pleaded no contest to charges related to two robbery cases at area gas stations.
Kenneth Groholski, 30, of Plover, faces up to 15 years in prison on two counts of robbery with threat of force, and one county of attempted robbery with threat of force. Groholski had been the primary suspect in robbing Southside BP, 3209 Church St., on Aug. 11, 2014, taking $750 from the store. He also attempted to rob Westside Mobil, 232 W. Clark Street the same day, but was chased from the store by a clerk with a baseball bat.
Groholski was arrested after police located him in a vehicle on Michigan Avenue on the morning on Aug. 11, 2014. Law enforcement closed off the roadway between Delaney and Heffron streets for less than an hour in what was pegged by Stevens Point police as a “high risk” pullover.
Groholski returns to court for sentencing on Oct. 20.
