Federal prosecutors have charged a 41-year-old St. Louis man with one felony count of armed robbery in connection with the Vincent Jewelers armed robbery in Creve Coeur last month.

Police say Michael Gladney was one of four individuals who entered the store located on Olive Boulevard on March 19 armed with guns and a pipe.

According to police, the suspects, including Gladney, ordered the workers of the business to the back of the store at gunpoint. After that, police say the suspects fired shots into the jewelry cases taking numerous pieces of jewelry.
