Bank Robbery Suspect Admits to Car Theft
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - The man charged with robbing a Rochester credit union in June pleaded guilty Monday to a motor vehicle theft charge in Goodhue County Court.
20-year-old Andrew Fogan was arrested following a chase in the Zumbrota area about a week after he allegedly held up Affinity Plus Credit Union near the Walmart North store in Rochester, but at the time he had not been identified as a suspect in that robbery. Zumbrota Police reported Fogan was being sought in connection with a robbery in Red Wing when he was stopped by an officer around 1 AM on June 25th.
After a struggle with the officer, Fogan ran into a nearby wooded area before stealing a car and leading authorities on a chase. He eventually abandoned the stolen car and tried to elude the pursuing law officers by running into some woods, but he was eventually found in a storm shelter at a mobile home park in Zumbrota and was apprehended after he was shocked with a Taser when he tried to run off again.
Fogan was sentenced Monday to three years on probation and 100 days in jail, but he was given credit for the 100 days he has already served. He is still facing charges in Olmsted County for allegedly robbing the credit union on June 19th.
