Man receives 2-year prison stint for Moorhead robbery

A 23-year-old from Lincoln, N.D., who admitted he helped plan an armed home invasion last fall was given a two-year stint in state prison on Monday in Clay County District Court.

Jason Christopher Pendleton pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit aggravated robbery in the Nov. 8 robbery of a Moorhead apartment unit, an attempted drug heist that went awry when they hit the wrong apartment.

Police alleged Pendleton was one of the three armed men who robbed the home in the wake of a fake pizza delivery they staged there.

Pendleton agreed to plead guilty in exchange for the state dropping five other charges against him. At his plea hearing, he testified he would have sold the stolen pot had the robbery gone as planned.
