Detroit Lakes man pleads guilty to robbery of White Earth store

A Detroit Lakes man pleaded guilty to the armed robbery of a White Earth convenience store last year.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 33-year-old Levi Jerome brought an assault rifle into the convenience store last November.

Jerome then pointed the rifle at the clerk and demanded she open the register, to which she complied and he stole over $2,200 in cash.

Jerome was arrested in North Dakota about two weeks after the robbery.

The ATF, the White Earth Police Department, the Becker County Sheriff’s Office, the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force and the Devils Lake (North Dakota) Police Department assisted with the investigation.
