Owners of a Lawrence secondhand store pleaded not guilty Monday afternoon in federal court to obstruction charges.
Guy and Carrie Neighbors, owners of the Yellow House Store, 1904 Mass., waived formal reading of the one count each they face. U.S. Magistrate Judge James P. O'Hara scheduled a motion hearing in the case for Nov. 10 in front of U.S. District Judge Carlos Murguia.
In August, police arrested the couple on a warrant accusing them of not handing over a document during an investigation into a computer sold on eBay. The computer had been reported stolen from Kansas University. A grand jury later indicted them.
In a separate case, the couple faces 19 charges each related to accusations for selling stolen goods on the Internet and drug charges in a third case. For nearly three years, the store owners have denied wrongdoing and accused prosecutors and police of corruption.
The couple are free on bond in all cases.
