Gavel Court Crime Courts

An East Grand Forks man pleaded guilty on Feb. 28 to robbing the University Avenue Loaf 'N Jug in September.

Raymond Ahlgrim, 18, was sentenced to five years with the North Dakota Department of Corrections with three years suspended and two years of supervised probation as part of a plea agreement. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery, conspiracy to commit terrorizing and theft of less than $500.

On Sept. 30, Ahlgrim and Valentin Mendoza, 18, allegedly entered the Loaf 'N Jug with what the clerk believed to be a firearm, according to court documents. Documents show that the two men ordered the clerk to give them money from the register. The clerk complied, and the two men fled the store, according to an affidavit.

The robbery charge, the most serious of the three charges, carried a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. In addition to his prison sentence, Ahlgrim was ordered to pay $805 in court fees and $99 in restitution to the Loaf 'N Jug.

Mendoza also sentenced on Feb. 24 to five years in state prison with three years suspended and two years of supervised probation.
