KC Man, Woman Indicted for Seven Armed Robberies

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A Kanas City, Mo., man and woman have been indicted by a federal grand jury for their roles in a conspiracy to commit a series of armed robberies at area businesses.

Aaron Fisher, 46, and Dawn Baldwin, 49, both of Kansas City, were charged in a 16-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Kansas City, Mo., on May 2, 2018. The indictment replaces a criminal complaint that was filed on April 6, 2018, and includes additional charges. Fisher and Baldwin remain in federal custody without bond.

The federal indictment alleges that Fisher and Baldwin participated in an armed robbery conspiracy from Dec. 20, 2017, through April 2, 2018.

In addition to the conspiracy, Fisher and Baldwin are charged together with two armed robberies: the armed robbery of Holiday Inn Express, 19901 E. Valley View Parkway, Independence, Mo., on Dec. 31, 2017; and with the armed robbery of Comfort Inn Motel, 210 N.W. Jefferson St., Grain Valley, Mo., on Jan. 21, 2018. They are also charged together with possessing and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence in each of those robberies.

Fisher is also charged with five additional armed robberies: the armed robbery of Blue Ridge Food Stop, 4704 Blue Ridge Blvd., Kansas City, Mo., on Dec. 20, 2017; the armed robbery of Subway, 3380 Fascination, Lee’s Summit, Mo., on Dec. 20, 2017; the armed robbery of Papa Murphy’s, 9027 E. 350 Hwy., Raytown, Mo., on Jan. 4, 2018; the armed robbery of Four Points Sheraton, 4011 Blue Ridge, Kansas City, Mo., on Jan. 15, 2018; and the armed robbery of Trex Mart, 7812 E. 116 Hwy., Lathrop, Mo., on April 2, 2018. Fisher is charged with possessing and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence in each of those robberies.

Fisher is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. The indictment alleges that Fisher, having been convicted of a felony, was in possession of an H7R .22-caliber revolver on Dec. 20, 2017.

The charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Moeder. It was investigated by the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department, the FBI, the Independence, Mo., Police Department, the Lee’s Summit, Mo., Police Department, the Raytown, Mo., Police Department, the Grain Valley, Mo., Police Department, the Blue Springs, Mo., Police Department, the Overland Park, Kan., Police Department and the Clinton County, Mo., Sheriff’s Department.
