ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – A man is in custody after he allegedly robbed at least different five people over a three-day period in the St. Louis area.
Calleon Hall pleaded guilty Thursday to charges of first-degree robbery, four counts of armed criminal action and second-degree robbery.
According to authorities, Hall went to a local Sav-A-Lot grocery store on Jan. 9 and approached a man as he was loading his groceries into his car. Before he grabbed the man’s wallet, Hall pointed a gun at the man and told him “This is serious, I’m not playing. I’ll get the wallet.”
Police said Hall robbed two more people that night, one person who was leaving a restaurant and one who was taking a walk.
Police said two days later, Hall went on a similar crime spree. Authorities said one man was pumping gas when Hall put a gun to his back and stole $55. At about 6:15 p.m. Hall went to Straub’s in the Central West End and robbed a woman sitting in her car.
Authorities said some of the victims looked at a lineup and were able to identity Hall, who was arrested shortly after. Hall later admitted to the crimes, according to police.
Hall has since been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
