BOZEMAN — A Butte man was back in court Wednesday morning after Bozeman City Police may have connected him to another crime.
Now, he's facing charges tied to a smoke shop robbery.
According to court documents, Michael St. Pierre was back in Gallatin County Justice Court after investigators say he was an accomplice to a robbery at Mellow Mood Pipe and Tobacco in Bozeman.
In that case, court documents show Matthew Noorlander is accused of stealing a $400 water pipe, then running from an employee who chased him.
When the employee stopped him in the parking lot, investigators say Noorlander took out a gun, fired it at the employee and towards MSU dorm buildings, then ran.
Now, according to Bozeman City Police, St. Pierre is now also charged with robbery.
Surveillance cameras outside caught a man fitting his description and with the same car leaving the scene.
St. Pierre eventually admitted to working with Noorlander when investigators showed him the footage.
St. Pierre’s bond was set at $50,000 to run concurrently with his other $50,000 bond for his DUI charge.
