Moorhead man given two years for role in robbery

Raekwon Joseph Thomas

MOORHEAD — A Moorhead man was sentenced Friday, Jan. 12, in Clay County District Court to two years in prison for his role in a robbery that led to a shooting in south Moorhead last summer.

Raekwon J. Thomas, 19, earlier pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery.

Thomas was given credit for having served 171 days and he was ordered to pay fees totaling $210. Other charges pending against Thomas were dismissed.

According to Moorhead police and court records:

The shooting took place the evening of July 25 near the 900 block of 37th Avenue South in Moorhead after a number of people who knew each other had gathered for a drug transaction.

Three vehicles were believed to have been involved in the incident.

No one was injured, but one vehicle was damaged from gunfire.

Thomas was taken into custody early July 26 for questioning and was arrested later that afternoon without incident along with D'Angelo M. Brooks, 20, of Fargo, and a juvenile male from Fargo.

Brooks has pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 18.
