Robber of St. Peters liquor store sentenced to 12 years in prison

ST. LOUIS – U.S. District Judge Rodney W. Sippel on Wednesday sentenced a man who robbed a liquor store in St. Peters, Missouri to 12 years in prison.

Bobby Andre, of Northwoods, robbed the Cool Spot Liquor store in St. Peters of about $143 on July 31, 2018 at gunpoint, using a blue cloth rag to hide his face. Andre dropped the rag before leaving the store. 

DNA from the rag matched Andre’s DNA profile, which was in both Missouri and federal databases due to Andre’s prior criminal convictions. 

Andre, now 44, of Northwoods, pleaded guilty in January to a robbery charge and a charge of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.

The case was investigated by the FBI and the St. Peters Police Department.
