Happy Endings Casino armed robbery getaway driver sentenced

The admitted getaway driver in an armed robbery of Happy Endings Casino last year was sentenced in Butte Thursday.

Robert Warren, 31, received a three-year deferred sentence and was ordered to pay $586 in restitution Thursday morning. He previously pleaded guilty in connection to a holdup at the casino on Paxson Avenue that happened just before midnight on March 18, 2009.

Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff John Walsh says that Warren was apprehended on March 27, 2009 after police spotted a van in the parking lot of Hastings on Harrison Avenue evening that matched the description of the vehicle seen leaving the casino after the robbery.

According to police, a clerk at the casino reported that two men entered the casino, one from the front door and the other from side door, and pointed a shotgun at him.

The suspects left with an undisclosed amount of money and Warren allegedly drove the getaway vehicle.
