The United States Attorney's Office announced that during a federal court session in Billings, on February 14, 2013, before Chief U.S. District Judge Richard F. Cebull, CODY JAMES KINN, age 22, and JOSHUA CHARLES KRANK, age 22, residents of Roundup, appeared for sentencing. They were each sentenced to a term of:

Probation: 5 years with 6 months house arrest with GPS monitoring

Special Assessment: $100

Restitution: $12,315.29

They were sentenced in connection with their guilty pleas to burglary involving controlled substances.

In an Offer of Proof filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paulette L. Stewart, the government stated it would have proved at trial the following:

On October 24, 2011, KINN and KRANK broke into the Pamida Pharmacy in Roundup and stole prescription drugs including Adderall (Dextroamphetamine and Amphetamine), Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Dextroamphetamine, Hydromorphone, Morphine, and Methadone. There were approximately 7,000 pills taken.

When interviewed by law enforcement, KINN and KRANK admitted to breaking into the Pamida Pharmacy to steal pills. Both admitted to coming into the pharmacy by breaking a window and crawling inside. Both filled IGA shopping bags with bottles of prescription medications from the unlocked safe.

Replacement cost for the stolen pills is approximately $13,000, however this is not their street value.

The investigation was a cooperative effort between the Musselshell County Sheriff's Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Montana Division of Criminal Investigation.
