LIMA — A request for the same brand of cigarettes during an interrogation with detectives a man charged with robbing a gas station is accused of taking cannot be used against him at trial, a judge ruled.
But 16 minutes of statements Richard Stoneburner made to investigators before he asked for an attorney will be allowed into evidence against him, Judge David Cheney of Allen County Common Pleas Court ruled.
Stoneburner, 27, was seeking to have that evidence suppressed. He is charged with aggravated robbery along with Heather L. Stotler, 34. They are accused of robbing the One Stop Shop Marathon at 4170 N. West St. A man entered the gas station wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a black mask over his face. He had a long-barrel black revolver, and demanded cash and cigarettes before leaving the store.
