A Fort Thompson man who admits to holding up a Sioux Falls casino will serve nearly 30 years in prison for his crimes.
25-year-old Ryan John Scott robbed the clerk at Ken's Corner Pub and Casino in September 2011. The robbery led to an extensive search of the central Sioux Falls neighborhood.
Scott was already in custody when authorities connected him to the hold up nearly a month later.
A judge sentenced Scott on Wednesday. Scott will serve time for first-degree robbery, having a firearm with an altered serial number and for having a stolen firearm.
