Virgil George Standing Crow III was charged with felony robbery after a driver locked him in the back of the delivery truck from which he allegedly tried to steal alcohol.
When Bismarck police responded to Captain Jack’s Liquor Land, 808 S. Second St., at 8:11 a.m. Wednesday, officers found Standing Crow already locked up, according to an affidavit.
The 24-year-old Bismarck man had tried to take alcohol from the delivery trailer, but the driver refused and pulled the trailer door shut, locking the man in with the cases of alcohol, according to the affidavit.
A police officer opened the door of the trailer and ordered Standing Crow to the floor at gunpoint, according to the affidavit.
While locked in the trailer, Standing Crow threw around cases of liquor bottles, with damages totaling $596, Sgt. Mark Buschena said.
Marvin Sitter, the manager at Captain Jack’s, said this was an isolated incident and the company is not concerned about it happening again.
Standing Crow is being held at Burleigh County Detention Center on $5,000 cash bail.
