HELENA - The man accused of trying to rob the Papa John's Pizza store in January has now been charged with four counts of criminal distribution of dangerous drugs.
David Randall Lacey appeared in Helena District Court on charges of selling meth.
He could face up to life in prison on each count with a mandatory minimum of a year.
Lacey appeared in court on a charge of attempted robbery related to the pizza incident.
Clerks at the store say Lacey came in with a bandanna and asked for money from the till. The cashier handed him the money, and then Lacey broke down crying, saying that he didn't want to rob the place, but needed the money to feed his family. The clerk then gave Lacey a pizza and some wings and sent him on his way.
It was later reported that Lacey does not have a wife or children.
Lacey remains in jail on a $25,000 bond.
