St. Louis Man Sentenced for Armed Robbery of 7-11 Store

St. Louis, MO – Travion Lindsey, 20, of St. Louis, was sentenced to 108 months in prison for armed robbery charges.  He appeared in federal court today before U.S. District Judge Ronnie L. White. 

According to court documents, Lindsey, along with co-defendants Jevante Phillips and Ahmaad Ali, entered the 7-11 store located on Christy Avenue in South St. Louis, Missouri on October 18, 2017.  The three arrived at the 7-11 in a Pontiac Aztek that had been stolen one day earlier at gunpoint by Ali and Phillips.  They entered the store with firearms displayed.  Their faces were covered with masks.  Phillips walked around the counter and began removing lottery tickets and money from the cash register.  Ali jumped over the counter and began removing the cash register’s contents.  Lindsey stood guard at the door and eventually assisted in removing the money.  After two minutes inside of the store, the three started taking liquor bottles, cigarettes, and candy on their way outside.  The males then re-entered the Aztec and fled the area. 

Phillips pled guilty in September 2018 and was sentenced to 130 months in prison in February 2019.  Ahmaad Ali pled guilty in February 2019 and will be sentenced May 8, 2019.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and assisted by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom Mehan was handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
