FARGO - U.S. Attorney Timothy Q. Purdon announced that on April 23, 2014, Satrone Rashard Boyd, 38, of Dickinson, N.D., was sentenced before U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Erickson to serve 7 ½ years in prison for bank robbery.

On Oct. 25, 2013, at approximately 9:30 a.m., Boyd and codefendant Rendell Charles Hardy forcefully robbed Northland Financial in Medina, N.D. wearing clown masks. After quickly approaching the teller, Boyd demanded money from a bank employee after which the two men fled the scene. Boyd and Hardy later changed vehicles southwest of Medina, N.D., before being identified at a truck stop near the Star Lite Motel in Jamestown, N.D. A surveillance video showed Boyd throwing the masks and a set of keys into the dumpster by the Star Lite Motel. Boyd was later apprehended in Fargo, N.D. Sentencing for Hardy is set for July 1, 2014, at 2:15 p.m. in United States District Court.

Judge Erickson also sentenced Boyd to serve three years of supervised release, to pay $2,670 in restitution and a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victims Fund.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation together with the Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office, the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the Dickinson Police Department and the Fargo Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Keith Reisenauer prosecuted the case.
