HURON, S.D. (AP) - A Lane man accused of using a hand gun to steal soda pop from a Huron convenience store has pleaded not guilty to two charges by reason of insanity.

KOKK-AM reports that 61-year-old Martin Moeller has entered his plea to charges of first-degree robbery and commission of a felony with a firearm.

The charges stem from an incident in early June when authorities say Moeller attempted to buy two bottles of soda from the store, but didn’t have the money to pay. Authorities say Moeller momentarily left the store, returned with a long barreled revolver, grabbed the items and left with without paying.

Judge Jon Erickson in Beadle County says Moeller must undergo a psychiatric evaluation and the trial schedule for November will likely be moved to a later time.
