Robert Thomas; Man Nabbed After Murder-For-Hire Scheme in Todd County

The Todd County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man on Tuesday after he admitted to engaging in a murder-for-hire scheme.

Robert Thomas, 38, of Sauk Centre is in custody at the Todd County Jail on charges of conspiracy to commit murder.

Late last month, the Todd County Sheriff’s Office was made aware of a person trying to hire someone to murder a resident of Todd County. The target of the scheme is a close acquaintance of the suspect.

The Todd County Sheriff’s Office, the West Central Minnesota Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) immediately launched an investigation.

An undercover BCA agent arranged to meet with the suspect, later identified as Thomas. During the meeting, Thomas came to an agreement with the agent to commit murder, including making an initial payment. Thomas agreed to pay more money once the murder was committed.

A formal complaint is pending with the Todd County Attorney’s Office. No other information is available at this time due to the active nature of the investigation.
