COLFAX — In a Whitman County Superior Court hearing Friday, Sept. 1, the two nineteen-year-old males who allegedly robbed five Washington State University Students Saturday, July 1, pled guilty to single felony robbery counts against each man.

Frank Alexander Rodriguez, 19, and Robert Ivan Garcia, 19, both of Richland, took the pleas in return for Whitman County Prosecutor Denis Tracy dropping four additional robbery counts against each man, reports show.
