The La Crosse man arrested for armed robbery earlier this month has also been charged with delivering cocaine.
La Crosse police took James Green, 23, into custody on Thursday, January 9 at the scene of an alleged armed robbery on the 1100 block of 9th Street S. A 15-year-old was also arrested.
In La Crosse County Court on Friday, Green pleaded not guilty to charges related to the incident, including attempted armed robbery with threat of force as party to a crime and possession of a firearm by a felon, as party to the crime.
He was also charged with two counts of delivering cocaine from unrelated incidents in mid-December. La Crosse police worked with a citizen on a pair of controlled buys. The citizen confirmed Green as the suspect based on images from surveillance video.
