Man pleads guilty in Bismarck-Mandan robberies

MANDAN, N.D. — A Bismarck man has pleaded guilty to two felonies related to a Mandan bar holdup in January.

Thirty-nine-year-old Shane Wentz will be sentenced later on robbery and conspiracy charges in the armed robbery of the gambling site at the Last Call Bar.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1affYx1 ) that Wentz also has pleaded guilty to several felony counts in the robberies of two Bismarck businesses and a burglary at a third in early February. He's to be sentenced for those crimes on July 24.

A co-defendant in the Bismarck cases was sentenced earlier to eight years in prison. A second man charged in the Mandan robbery has pleaded guilty to a conspiracy count and is to be sentenced Aug. 5.
