WRIGHT COUNTY, MN – A 34-year-old man pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to committing the April 24 robbery of a McDonald’s in Buffalo, according to the US District Attorney’s Minnesota Office.
Matthew Dillon Sisneros admitted to entering the restaurant (located at 303 7th Street NE in Buffalo), pointing a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun at employees, and demanding money. After receiving $3,266, Sisneros ran to a waiting vehicle and left the area.
Sisneros pleaded guilty to one count of interference with commerce by robbery, and one count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence.
Sisneros faces a potential maximum penalty of 20 years in prison for robbery, and a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years for possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence. His sentence will be determined at a future hearing, yet to be scheduled.
The case is the result of an investigation by the Buffalo Police Department, the Wright County Sheriff’s Office, and the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, with cooperation from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. It is being prosecuted by assistant US attorneys Julie Allyn and Laura Provinzino.
