Taco Bell Crime of the Week!

I once flew to Fargo, which had the closest airport to the University of Minnesota-Morris, which is in the middle of nowhere but a very pleasant place (and how is it that THEY have a street named after Cesar Chavez but not SanTana?). On the drive away from the airport, I spotted a huge Mexican restaurant. Didn't have the time to stop and try it, but I'm sure I didn't miss much. And, with that, an update to the previous SAFII story about the Fargo Taco Bell employee who conspired to fake his own store robbery:

A former north Fargo Taco Bell employee pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring to rob the store at gunpoint.

Michael Vincent Wanzek, 21, received a deferred sentence after entering the plea in Cass County District Court to the felony.

Wanzek was given credit for six days previously spent in custody and will serve two years of supervised probation. He must either serve an additional 24 days in jail or complete 240 hours of community service, East Central Judicial District Court Judge Steven Marquart ordered.

Wanzek has no prior convictions.
