ST. LOUIS – U.S. District Judge Henry E. Autrey on Tuesday sentenced a man from Florissant, Missouri to 105 months in prison for robbing two area banks and a fast-food restaurant with what appeared to be a handgun.

Judge Autrey also sentenced Ricardo L. Rusan, 58, to an additional 24 months in prison for violating his supervised release in a 2005 bank robbery case. 

On Jan. 1, 2019, Rusan robbed a Church’s Chicken in Green Park, in south St. Louis County. On April 16, 2019, he robbed a Commerce Bank in Clayton. Two days later, he robbed a Bank of America in St. Peters.

Rusan pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in August to two counts of bank robbery and one other robbery charge.

The case was investigated by the St. Louis County Police Department, the St. Peters Police Department, the Clayton Police Department and the FBI. Assistant U.S. Attorney Cassandra Wiemken prosecuted the case.
