BOZEMAN - A judge has maintained the bail amount for an 18-year-old man accused of holding up a video store near Belgrade.

Defendant Sean Lindquist's mother asked District Judge Mike Salvagni on Monday to release her son without bail and allow him to live with her at her Belgrade home "because I love my son, and I'd like to help him out."

Lindquist and a then 16-year-old boy are accused of entering Lakeside Video the evening of Jan. 3 wearing ski masks. Authorities say one of them demanded money and brandished a small semiautomatic pistol.

Court documents say the teens took $85 and one of them told the clerk to keep the one-dollar bills "in case she had customers who needed change and he apologized for what he was doing."
