Robbery Suspect Pleads Guilty to 5 Counts

A Perham woman pleads guilty to 5 counts of robbery in Cass County Court.

Authorities say Stephanie Padilla and Arturo Amador-Diaz were responsible for a string of armed robberies in the metro late last year.

They include robberies at Casey’s, Taco Johns, Petro and Caribou Coffee in Fargo and CVS in Moorhead.

Padilla already served time for the CVS robbery.

She’ll be sentenced later this summer on the Fargo charges.

Prosecutors say the couple committed the crimes to pay for a drug addiction.
