Posted: Updated:

A Butte man suspected of robbing a store at gunpoint in late December only to be found in Lincoln City, Oregon appeared in court in Butte Thursday afternoon.

30-year-old Dale Wallace was extradited back to Montana on Thursday.

Wallace and 30-year-old Sarah Jo Johnson allegedly robbed "Cards 'n Coins" in Butte while restraining the owner and threatening him with a gun on December 30.

The couple was found in Lincoln City, Oregon a week later.

Wallace was struck by a patrol vehicle while trying to elude police and Johnson took her own life after a five hour standoff.

Wallace is being held on $150,000 bond.

He faces up to 40 years in prison and will appear in court on February 13.
