[ARCHIVED] Teen Admits to Pointing Gun at Clerk in Lancaster Store Robbery

Temar Boggs

A Lancaster teenager admitted Thursday to robbing a city store at gunpoint last year.

Lancaster County Judge Howard Knisely will sentence 18-year-old Temar S. Boggs after a background check is completed in a couple months.

Boggs pointed a gun at a store clerk on Dec. 17, 2015 when he robbed a clerk at El Coqui Market, 611 North Plum St.

First Assistant District Attorney Christopher P. Larsen said in court that Boggs racked the slide on the gun while demanding money from the clerk.

Boggs and an accomplice fled with about $200.

Lancaster city police released surveillance images of the robbery suspects.

Police received tips as to the identity of the robbers: Boggs and 16-year-old Yamel Yelverton.

Multiple individuals identified the teens as the suspects in the photos.

On Thursday, Boggs, of East Lemon Street, pleaded to felony counts of robbery and conspiracy.

Yelverton, who served as the look out, also is charged. His case is pending.
Lancaster city police Officer Adam Dommel filed charges.
