Not guilty pleas were entered on behalf of Eliezer Martinez on Wednesday in Lawrence District Court to charges of armed robbery, larceny over $250, obstruction of justice, conspiracy and filing a false police report in connection with the Monday robbery. The Eagle-Tribune reports that he was held on $150,000 bail.
Martinez and another of the three men charged are employees of the armored car company.
