Lincoln man sentenced in pizza guy 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 prison stint 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 said Pendleton was one of the three armed men who robbed the home in the wake of a fake pizza delivery they staged there.

He was one of five men charged in the robbery and the third to be sentenced.

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