Trial set in February for two others

A man arrested in connection with last month’s holdup of Chisholm’s Supermarket in North Side has pleaded guilty to robbery and possessing an imitation firearm.

Courtney Mason Bryan, 20, appeared Oct. 18 in Grand Court, where he admitted to the robbery charge and to possessing an imitation firearm in relation to the incident. He was in court along with Odain Lloyd Ebanks, 19, and Ian Fernando Ellington, 29.

The latter two, represented by attorneys James Stenning and Prathna Bodden, respectively, entered pleas of not guilty. Justice Charles Quin set their trial for Feb. 3, 2014.

He remanded all three in custody. Bryan, represented by attorney Lucy Organ, is scheduled to return for sentencing on Dec. 5.

A fourth defendant is a juvenile and has been appearing in a separate court.

Goods and cash stolen from store staff by threat of force totaled $1,495.
