Jury convicts St. Louis man for series of armed robberies at local restaurants

Date:

St. Louis, Missouri – A St. Louis jury delivered a verdict on Wednesday, convicting Kammeron Davis, a 33-year-old resident, of multiple charges related to a series of armed robberies targeting local restaurants. Davis faced accusations stemming from a spree of criminal activities that occurred over a single week in September 2020.

A Week of Crime

The U.S. District Court in St. Louis found Davis guilty of three counts of robbery and one count of attempted robbery, in addition to three counts of brandishing a firearm during these violent offenses.

The series of incidents began on September 13, 2020, when Davis entered a Penn Station restaurant in St. Louis. Armed with a gun, he threatened the employees and demanded cash from the premises.

Just three days later, Davis’s criminal endeavors continued; however, an attempt to rob a Subway restaurant in Maplewood was thwarted by a brave employee wielding a broom, who managed to chase him off the property.

Despite the setback, Davis’s crime spree did not end there. Within 15 minutes of the failed robbery attempt, he successfully robbed another Subway location in St. Louis. This time, he jumped over the counter and forcefully took money from the cash register while armed.

The week of robberies concluded on September 20, with Davis and an accomplice targeting yet another Subway restaurant in St. Louis.

Evidence and Identification

The robberies were thoroughly documented, captured clearly on video surveillance. Additionally, the vehicle Davis used during the crimes was also recorded. During the trial, three witnesses positively identified Davis as the assailant, further cementing the case against him.

Upcoming Sentencing and Previous Convictions

Davis is set to receive his sentence on October 22. He is facing a mandatory minimum of 21 years in prison due to the firearm charges alone, with each robbery and attempted robbery charge carrying a potential sentence of up to 20 years.

This is not Davis’s first encounter with the law; he previously pleaded guilty in 2011 for a similar robbery at a Penn Station restaurant and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Investigative and Prosecutorial Efforts

The case was diligently investigated by the FBI, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, and the Maplewood Police Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Donald Boyce and Cort VanOstran are responsible for prosecuting the case, which is part of the broader initiative under Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN).

This national program aims to reduce violent crime and gun violence through enhanced collaboration between various levels of law enforcement and community organizations, focusing on building trust within communities and strategically addressing public safety concerns.
