ST. LOUIS – On Wednesday of this week, United States District Court Judge Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr. accepted pleas of guilty from Kevin Moore for the crimes of robbery and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of that robbery.  Immediately after the guilty pleas, Moore, a 39-year old St. Louis, Missouri resident, was sentenced to a 141-month term of imprisonment.  

On August 28, 2019, Moore entered Behrmann’s Tavern in the 3100 block of Meramec Street located in St. Louis and announced a robbery. He ordered five customers and one employee to the ground and held them at gunpoint with a semi-automatic rifle.

One of the customers refused to get on the ground. Moore pushed the barrel of his rifle into the side of the customer’s ribcage and tried to take his property.  Moore then put the barrel of his rifle into the back of another customer and robbed that customer of his money. Continuing with his robbery spree, Moore pointed his semi-automatic, assault rifle at the other patrons and commandeered their valuables, including their money and other items.

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department investigated this case. Assistant United States Attorney Jason Dunkel is handling this matter.
