Bond Set For Robbery Suspects

February 3, 2014, 5:01 PM by Don Jorgensen

Bond Set For Robbery Suspects
Joshua Porth | Jonathon Julson


The two Sioux Falls men accused of going on an armed robbery spree made their first court appearances on Monday.  Due to the seriousness of the charges, both Joshua Porth and Jonathon Julson won't be getting out of jail anytime soon.

Bond was set for both 24-year-old Julson and 20-year-old Porth at $250,000 each.  They are accused in a string of armed robberies that left many clerks shaken wondering when they might strike next.

Police arrested Porth and Julson shortly after a robbery at the Kum N Go at 69th Street and Western Avenue.   

Investigators found clothing, masks and BB or air guns inside a vehicle that tie them to the crimes.

The two are also accused of holding up a different Kum N Go, the Paradise Casino, Freedom Gas Station and a Domino's Pizza.  

In the Domino's robbery, police say the two men entered the store while crews were closing it down.  One of the suspects forced the employees into a back room at gunpoint while the other raided the cash register.
Julson is also charged with possession of a controlled substance. 

Police say finding the two suspects has been a long process and credit good old-fashioned police work for cracking the case.

In all of the robberies, nobody was hurt.  Julson and Porth could each get 75 years in prison if convicted for the robberies.
