No arrests in robbery, burglaries
No arrests have been made in connection to an armed robbery that occurred at Hollywood Nites Video in Dickinson on Saturday evening, according to the Dickinson Police Department.
Authorities have also made no arrests related to two weekend burglaries.
A man wearing a black ski mask and black clothing entered Hollywood Nites at about 9 p.m. and brandished a handgun, said DPD Capt. Dustin Dassinger.
The man demanded money from the clerk, who was the only person in the store at the time, he said. Nobody was injured and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken, he added.
"The officers are trying to follow up on any leads they might have," Dassinger said. "At this time, we don't have any information to believe that there's more than one person involved."
A cash register was also taken from the RoughStock Saloon in Richardton recently, said Stark County Sheriff Clarence Tuhy.
It was recovered, but was damaged and an undisclosed amount of money was taken from it, he said.
Josh Wessels, owner of the bar, said gaming money was also missing and two gaming machines were broken.
The window in the front door was broken, and Tuhy said that may be how entry was gained.
"It could have happened anywhere from 8:30 Sunday evening until Monday morning," Wessels said.
He estimated damages will cost about $3,000.
An overhead projector was reported stolen from a Dickinson State University South Campus classroom Monday afternoon, Dassinger said. It is believed to have been stolen over the weekend, but entry to the building did not appear to be forced, he added.
"The projector was attached to the ceiling and it looks like somebody was prying on it to get it off the ceiling," Dassinger said.
The projector, which was taken from art room 16, is valued between $800 and $1,200.
It is a Hitachi brand with a model number of CPS 860.
Constance Walter, director of university relations at DSU, said she could not comment on the matter since police are investigating.
Creative Energy in Belfield was also burglarized early Saturday morning.
However, no new information has been released about it.
All thefts are being investigated, authorities say.
