Wichita Man Charged In Armed Robbery at Convenience Store
WICHITA, KAN. – A Wichita man was charged in federal court here Thursday with an armed robbery at a convenience store on the west side of the city, Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.
Quincy D. Hadley, 36, Wichita, is charged with one count of robbing a commercial business, one count of brandishing a firearm during the robbery and one count of unlawfully possessing a firearm following a felony conviction.
A criminal complaint filed in the case alleges Hadley was wearing a ski mask and brandishing a .40 caliber High Point pistol when he entered the Presto Circle K at 4414 W. Maple in Wichita and pointed a gun at the clerk. After demanding and receiving cash he said he wanted cigarettes. When the clerk gave him bargain cigarettes he said he wanted name brand cigarettes. After receiving cartons of Marlboro and Camel cigarettes, he fled the store.
An officer responding to the 911 call found him changing clothes in a parked car and arrested him. When police asked why he was partly unclothed, he said he was watching pornography on his phone.
If convicted he faces a penalty of up to 20 years and a fine up to $250,000 on the robbery count, not less than seven years and a fine up to $250,000 on the brandishing charge, and up to 10 years and a fine up to $250,000 on the other count. The Wichita Police Department investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brent Anderson is prosecuting.
In all cases, defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. The indictments merely contain allegations of criminal conduct.
