Mayville Gas Station Robbery Results In Prison Sentence

(Mayville) A Mayville man was sentenced Tuesday to five years in prison for robbing a gas station. In November, Paul Lehmann pled no contest to felony counts of Armed Robbery with the Threat of Force and Theft of Movable Property. Lehmann entered the Shell Gas Station on North Main Street in May and told the clerk that he had a gun. The clerk told police that he thought the suspect was lying and sounded scared so he told him to pull the gun out if he actually had one. After the clerk made the statement, the suspect walked out the front door and fled on a motorcycle. Authorities spotted the motorcycle parked on the street a few blocks away. In talking with Lehmann, the deputy noted that he had track marks on his arms indicative of heroin use and asked if he attempted to rob the gas station. The 39-year-old admitted his involvement and conceded that he does not own a gun. In addition to prison, Lehmann was placed on extended supervision for seven-and-half-years.
