A 28-year-old Roscommon man was charged Tuesday afternoon with the robbery of the Chemical Bank on East Pickard Street in Mt. Pleasant a day earlier.

George Oliver Webster’s attempt to plead guilty in Isabella County Trial Judge William Rush’s courtroom fell short when the judge explained that pleas can’t be taken during arraignments.

Webster was charged with one count of armed robbery and one count of bank robbery. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of any term of years up to and including life.

Rush ordered Webster to remain in the Isabella County Jail on $750,000 bond and is appointing an attorney to represent him in the case.
