Perfecto Ramos Jr. sentenced to 1 day time served, 2 years supervised probation, for burglarizing Ground Round
Perfecto Ramos Jr., 19, Minot, was sentenced earlier this month to 360 days in jail, all suspended but one day, and two years of supervised probation for burglarizing the Ground Round in Minot on May 12.
North Central District Court Judge Gary Lee also ordered Ramos to pay $1,287.89 in court costs and to stay away from the Ground Round. The C felony will be reduced to a Class A misdemeanor if Ramos successfully completes probation.
Co-defendant Kaleb Frey, 20, was sentenced in August to 360 days in jail, all suspended but the three days he already served, and two years of supervised probation.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, police were called after a burglar alarm went off at the restaurant. An officer caught Frey running out of the restaurant, wearing a cloth mask and carrying a tire iron in one hand and a crow bar in the other. Another officer chased Ramos and eventually found him hiding in a shed in the backyard of a residence on 19th Street SE. Ramos had a seat belt cutter and a glass punch on his person.
Ramos and Frey had pried open the south door at the Ground Round and tried to pry open a safe. The office had been searched. Cash drawers had been pulled out and a jar of change was on the counter.
