ND man pleads guilty to Spirit Lake post office break-in

FARGO — A 41-year-old St. Michael man has pleaded guilty to breaking into a post office on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation and stealing a U.S. Treasury check made out to another person.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says Robert Redroad Jr. pleaded guilty to charges of burglary of a post office and conspiracy to commit bank fraud related to the incident at the Tokio Post Office.

Purdon says that Redroad forged the signature on the check in September 2012 and had another person cash it at bank in Moorhead, Minn.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 12.
