  •  An 84-year-old man named as a getaway driver in a string of convenience store robberies in the Fargo-Moorhead area in January will not face criminal charges.
    Prosecutors tell The Forum newspaper (http://bit.ly/16VsApK) that they cannot prove that Einar Swanson knew what was happening when he drove another man from store to store, which the man allegedly robbed.
    Swanson told authorities that he did not know the suspect until the day he gave the man a ride, and that he agreed to stop at the stores for candy, cigarettes and other items.
