St. Louis Man Indicted on Charges of Breaking in a Gun Store

St. Louis, MO – Andre Legardy, 24, St. Louis, was indicted on December 20 and appeared today for his initial appearance after being arrested on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. 

 

The indictment alleges that on June 1, 2017, Legardy and others unknown burglarized Eagle Eye USA Shooting Sports in Wentzville, MO.  Legardy stole one or more firearms that had been transported in interstate commerce from the business inventory of the premises of Eagle Eye USA.

 

If Legardy is convicted, this charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.  In determining the actual sentences, a judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.

 

This case is being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. 

 

As is always the case, charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt.  Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty.
