Suspect in Devils Lake armed robbery sentenced

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. — One of two men charged in an Easter Sunday armed robbery of a Devils Lake bowling alley has been sentenced to serve four years in prison after pleading guilty to felony robbery.

KZZY radio reports that 19-year-old John Greywind Jr., of Fort Totten, had another six years of prison time suspended.

Ramsey County State's Attorney Lonnie Olson says Greywind admitted holding a knife to an employee at the Royal Lanes and demanding the employee open the safe.

Olson says about $1,800 was taken in the robbery. The employee wasn't hurt.

The second suspect, 18-year-old Johnson Tollefson, of St. Michael, has pleaded not guilty to robbery.
