A Mills man appeared in court Monday for the first time to face charges stemming from an 2015 alleged robbery in which a man and boys were tied up in a Casper mobile home.

Konnor Patrick Rollison, of Mills, is facing one charge each of aiding and abetting aggravated burglary, conspiracy to commit aggravated burglary, aiding and abetting aggravated robbery and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. Each count is punishable by five to 25 years in prison, meaning he could serve up to a century if convicted on all four charges.

Rollison did not enter a plea on Monday and spoke only to give identifying details and say he had spent more than two months in jail. Rollison also requested a reduction in his bond so he could continue to work in the jail kitchen.

The judge declined his request, citing the severity of the crimes he had been charged with, and ordered that Rollison continue to be held on $50,000 bond.

In August, Rollison turned 22 in the Natrona County Detention Center, where he was being held on unrelated charges.

Court documents allege that Rollison and three other men held a man and two boys at gunpoint in Aspen Trailer Park before tying up the victims and ransacking the trailer for a Playstation 4, cellphones and at least one bong.

Although the robbery is alleged to have occurred in July 2015, police were not alerted until January 2016, when an informant told police a group had robbed another man at gunpoint, according to court documents.

Police interviewed the alleged victim, who said he and his two friends had been sleeping when two men burst into his bedroom wielding guns and a hatchet. The man’s friends, both under 18 and thus unidentified in the court documents, were sleeping in the living room at the time, according to the documents. The man told police that intruders had threatened to kill him and his family if he went to police.

One of the two boys in the living room told police Rollison had tied him up in the living room while the other two men ransacked the trailer.

Three other men were implicated in the robbery and getaway. Rollison was the only one listed on jail records on Monday morning. More up-to-date records were not available.
