North Dakota man who did time in federal prison charged for failing to report to halfway house


FARGO, North Dakota — A North Dakota man who served time in prison for breaking into a post office on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation is back in custody for failing to report to a halfway house.

Robert Redroad Jr., of St. Michael, is charged in federal court with escape from custody. Authorities say Redroad failed to show up at the Lake Region Law Enforcement Center in Devils Lake in October after he was released from a federal prison in West Virginia.

Redroad was arrested in Fort Totten on Nov. 7.

Redroad was sentenced in April 2013 to 30 months in prison on charges of burglary of a post office and conspiracy to commit bank fraud. Authorities say he stole a U.S Treasury check from the post office in Tokio.
