August 18, 2011

ELKHORN — A Walworth County jury found a 26-year-old Twin Lakes man guilty Aug. 16 of armed robbery for his role in the hold up of the Delavan Dominos.

When Andrew Ballenger, 611 Rinky Ave., No. 10, is sentenced Oct. 19, he faces up to 40 years imprisonment and $100,000 in fines.

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

Terrance Cortez Walker Jr., 24, of Elgin, Ill., faces five counts of armed robbery. Michael R. Boyle, 44, faces five counts of armed robbery and a misdemeanor charge of theft.

Warrants have been on file for Walker and Boyle since November 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 to the spot where he hid the money with Boyle and Ballenger to retrieve the cash.

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