Two Rapid City Men Charged in Robbery

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that two Rapid City, South Dakota, men were charged in federal district court with Interference with Commerce by Robbery, Use and Brandishing of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime of Violence, and Conspiracy.

Corbin Conroy, age 40, and Wesley Dillon, age 18, were indicted on April 16, 2019.  Conroy and Dillon appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Daneta Wollmann and pleaded not guilty to the charges.  The maximum penalty upon conviction is life in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The charges relate to Conroy and Dillon robbing a Rapid City casino in March 2019, and brandishing a pistol at a casino employee. 

The charges are merely an accusation and Conroy and Dillon are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.  The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of its renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and local communities to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and the Rapid City Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Ben Patterson is prosecuting the case.

Conroy and Dillon were detained pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
