Three in court for robbing man at hotel

Three area men are scheduled to appear Monday in Becker County District Court on charges that they robbed a man in his Detroit Lakes hotel room on March 11.

Jeremy Jerome Person, 25, of 21804 County Highway 6, Detroit Lakes; Jason Everett Hanks, 36, of 36089 Moose St., Ogema; and Dylan Francis Warren, 27, of 1714 2nd St., Waubun, have each been charged with one felony count of simple robbery in connection with the incident.

According to court records, Person came to the hotel room of an acquaintance to visit with him, then said he had left something in the car and needed to go get it.

When he returned, he was allegedly accompanied by Hanks and Warren, and the trio proceeded to divest the man of his knife, wallet and cell phone, as well as a second cell phone belonging to another occupant of the room. The men then, according to the report, fled the scene in a vehicle that was located nearby a short time later. Several of the stolen items were found inside the vehicle, and Warren allegedly had $23 in cash on him.
