Cody Bauer, 31, was arrested at North Sky Pawn in Mandan after a manager notified police that Bauer was trying to pawn stolen items. The manager is part of a messenger group made up of loss prevention officers at area stores. He used information from the group to identify Bauer and the stolen items, according to the affidavit.
A manager at Runnings in Mandan later identified Bauer as the man who on Nov. 26 pulled a knife when confronted about shoplifting a $100 range finder, police say.
Bauer was charged Monday with felony robbery, terrorizing and possession of drug paraphernalia, along with misdemeanor theft, according to court documents. He is being held in the Burleigh Morton Detention Center in lieu of $15,000 bail. No attorney is listed for him in court documents.
