A plea has been entered in multiple cases against a South Lyon man charged in the robbery of a jewelry store in downtown Milford.

49-year-old Dennis Michael Maynarich was charged with four counts of armed robbery and seven weapons charges for a variety of incidents culminating in the robbery last year at the Rottermond Jewelers on North Main Street.

His case lingered in the courts while a criminal responsibility exam was conducted which determined in March that he was competent to stand trial. In Oakland County Circuit Court recently, Maynarich entered a no-contest plea to the armed robbery charges in exchange for the other counts being dropped.

Authorities say Maynarich, who remains jailed on a $500,000 bond, walked into the Rottermond store on September 1st of 2020 with a gun and demanded a particular piece of jewelry before fleeing. Responding officers then located him in a nearby parking lot.

Maynarich will be sentenced on November 5th.
