Mizpah Man Sentenced for Robbing the First State Bank of Bigfork in Kelliher
MINNEAPOLIS—Earlier this week in federal court, a 21-year-old Mizpah man was sentenced for his role in the robbery of the First State Bank of Bigfork in Kelliher, Minnesota, on December 10, 2012. On June 3, 2014, United States District Court Judge Donovan W. Frank sentenced Cody Lowell Troy to 120 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release. Troy, who was indicted along with a co-defendant on January 15, 2013, pleaded guilty to one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.
In his plea agreement, Troy admitted to robbing the bank while brandishing a 12-gauge, sawed-off shotgun that had a partially obliterated serial number. He stole approximately $3,738.
This case was the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, the Headwaters Safe Trails Task Force, and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Manda M. Sertich and Kevin S. Ueland.
