A 28 year-old man this week was sentenced to prison for robbing Blue Top Shell gas station.
Vincent Belthem of Stevens Point was convicted last December for robbing the gas station, located on the city’s south side on Church Street.
In July of 2013 Belthem entered the gas station shortly after 9 PM, locked the door behind him and demanded money and cigarettes. He got away with $1,000 and two cartons of cigarettes, some of which officers found inside Belthem’s home during a police search.
Portage County Circuit Court Judge John Finn sentenced Belthem to five years in prison with five years of supervision.
