A man who robbed a Lawrence restaurant earlier this year while armed with a BB gun was granted probation during a Thursday court hearing.
Douglas County Judge Paula Martin placed Michael S. Moreno, 19, of Lawrence, on probation for three years. His probation will be served through Douglas County Community Corrections.
Moreno had pleaded guilty to three counts of robbery in connection with an incident Jan. 3 at Taco John's, 1626 W. 23rd St.
Moreno also is waiting for a bed at an in-patient substance abuse treatment center in Atchison.
Moreno's co-defendant, Michael J. McDonald, 17, of Leavenworth, already had been placed on probation after entering a plea to one count of aggravated robbery.
