Rapid City man gets 5 years for robbing Spearfish restaurant

DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) — A Rapid City man who held up a Spearfish restaurant at gunpoint last summer has been sentenced to serve five years in prison.

Authorities say 19-year-old Daniel Beck Jr. robbed the Pizza Ranch restaurant of more than $400 on July 30, 2018. He pleaded guilty last November to robbery and prosecutors dropped a grand theft charge related to a stolen vehicle recovered during the investigation.

Beck was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison with half of the time suspended. He also was ordered to pay restitution to the restaurant and about $3,625 in court costs and attorney fees.
