A MAN has been committed to appear in the County Court after pleading guilty to a charge of armed robbery.

Tyler Beacham entered his plea during committal proceedings in the Bendigo Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

He was arrested and charged in December after a Long Gully service station was held up at knife point.

Police at the time alleged Beacham left the store with about $200 in cash. A knife, used to threaten the shop attendant, was left on the counter.

Court documents released at the time said the incident was captured on CCTV.

Police said Beacham, who was aged 25 at the time, demanded cash from the service station’s till.

A kitchen knife was tucked into Beacham’s pants when he entered the Eaglehawk Road premises, according to the documents.

Beacham made no application for bail during his appearance on Wednesday.

He attended the Bendigo Magistrates’ Court via video link.

Beacham is due to face the County Court in August.
