STANTON — A Greenville man has pleaded no contest to a charge that he robbed the Handy Market in Greenville last year.

Trevor Remelts, 22, was located and arrested by Greenville Department of Public Safety officers and Montcalm County sheriff’s deputies the night of Feb. 5 in Eureka Township.

Remelts was charged with unarmed robbery (a possible 15-year felony), larceny in a building (a possible four-year felony) and being a second notice habitual offender. He pleaded no contest Thursday in 8th Judicial Circuit Court to attempted unarmed robbery, a possible five-year felony.

Debbie Edmaiston of Gowen was working the night shift at the Handy Market at 813 S. Lafayette St. on Dec. 6, 2012, when a man wearing a mask told her to get behind the counter at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Edmaiston later told The Daily News the man and his voice seemed familiar, but she couldn’t quite place him. Edmaiston was not hurt during the robbery, in which Remelts took about $200.

Remelts will be sentenced at a later date.
