Armed robber receives four years in prison

October 27, 2011

ELKHORN — A 26-year-old Twin Lakes man was sentenced Oct. 19 to four years in a state prison for his role in a June 12, 2009 armed robbery.

Andrew Ballenger also must serve six years of extended supervision and pay restitution in the amount of $217.

Online court records indicate two co-defendants also face felony charges in connection with the robbery.

Terrance Cortez Walker Jr., 24, of Elgin, Ill., is serving consecutive prison sentences in both Wisconsin and Illinois.

Michael R. Boyle, 24, faces five counts of armed robbery and a misdemeanor charge of theft. Warrants have been on file for Boyle in Kenosha and Walworth County since Nov. 2, 2009.

According to the criminal complaint:

On June 12, two Domino's Pizza employees reported a man with a hand gun demanded money from them. The employees gave the man the money.

On June 25, police spoke with Walker who admitted he was involved in the robbery. Walker said he pointed a pellet gun at the Domino's employees and hid money in a bush when he left the store.

Walker said he later returned with Boyle and Ballenger to retrieve the cash to the spot where he hid the money.

After the robbery, Ballenger told police he was with Walker when he retrieved the money.

Ballenger told police Boyle planned the robberies.
