[ARCHIVED] Arrests Made in Bismarck Robberies/Burglary

The Bismarck Police Department has arrested two people in connection with two recent robberies and a burglary. Bismarck Police have arrested Justice Lange, 19, female, Bismarck, and Shane Wentz, 39, male, Bismarck.

On February 4th at 4:56 AM an employee of Main Stay Suites reported a female entered the hotel and presented a handgun, and demanded cash from the cash drawer. A few minutes later at 5:05 AM, an employee of Country West Shell reported a female entered, presented a handgun and demanded cash. On that same date Soap and Suds Laundry Mat was burglarized.

During the course of the investigation, Lange and Wentz were developed as suspects in the case. On February 6th, Lange found out police wanted to talk to her so she went to the Mandan Police Department, where she met with Bismarck Police investigators. Later in the day she was arrested.
Bismarck Police stopped Wentz who was in a motor vehicle shortly after a description of the vehicle he was believed to be in was broadcast. He was also arrested on February 6th.

Both were transported to Burleigh County Detention Center.
