KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - An 18-year-old Eureka man has pleaded guilty to robbery for stealing money from an undercover agent during a drug sting.

The Flathead Beacon reports (https://bit.ly/1RYCVYs ) Jacob Orion Sauls pleaded guilty on June 3. He was one of four people arrested in Evergreen in January.

Prosecutors said an undercover agent responded to an online ad offering methamphetamine for sale. They agreed to meet on Jan. 6.

Sheriff Chuck Curry says Sauls told the agent he had a gun and demanded the money. The agent handed over the money and the four tried to flee, but they were stopped by other agents. Officers found a loaded gun under Saul’s belt, but no meth was recovered.

The plea agreement recommends Sauls be sentenced to 15 years with the Department of Corrections with 10 suspended. Sauls’ sentencing is scheduled for August.
