ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- A 28-year-old man has been sentenced to 14 years in federal prison after committing three armed robberies in one day around St. Louis, officials said.
Court documents say Jerrinon Tate, of St. Louis, pointed a semi-automatic pistol at the clerks of three different businesses around St. Louis on June 12, 2018.
The series of robberies started at 1 a.m. when Tate entered a QuikTrip in Bellefontaine Neighbors and pointed his pistol at the clerk and demanded money.
Hours later, court documents say he entered a Moto Mart on Riverview Drive and pointed his pistol again and demanded money.
Twenty minutes later, Tate did the same thing at a Family dollar on Halls Ferry and threatened to shoot the clerk.
The total combined cash taken from all three stores was around $847.
On August 13, Tate was sentenced to 14 years in federal prison.
