Cayucos teen pleads not guilty to Morro Bay robbery charges

Cayucos teenager Tony Eugene Avila pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of robbing a bank, a liquor store and a cigarette shop in Morro Bay. The county District Attorney’s Office decided to charge the 17-year-old as an adult because of the severity of the crimes, which involved a loaded handgun, and because he is about six weeks away from turning 18, spokesman Jerret Gran said.
