SALISBURY, N.C. -- Three men pleaded guilty this week to their alleged involvement in a train robbery at a Salisbury station.

Altise Bridges, 25, and William Johnson, 20, were accused of carrying firearms aboard a Norfolk Southern train traveling from Columbia, S.C. to Asheville in April 2012. Police say they boarded during a crew change in Salisbury, demanded money from the engineer and conductor and fled.

Each could face 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.

Kenyad Kelly, 19, pleaded guilty to helping destroy and hide evidence after the fact. He could be jailed for 10 years, fined $125,000 and also serve three years of supervised release.
