EAST ST. LOUIS – A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted a 28-year-old Caseyville woman in connection with a store robbery earlier this year.
Jenna McGlasson was charged with one count of interference with commerce by robbery, which is a violation of the Hobbs Act, and for one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.
The charges involved the armed robbery of the Caseyville Mini Mart on June 25, Stephen R. Wigginton, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, said. McGlasson has been in custody since Sept. 24 and is being held without bond.
If convicted of the robbery charge, McGlasson faces a term in prison of up to 20 years, a fine of up to $250,000, or both, and a term of supervised release of up to three years. If convicted of the offense of brandishing a firearm she faces a minimum term in prison of seven years up to a maximum term of life, to be served consecutively to the robbery sentence, as well as a fine of up to $250,000, and a term of supervised release of up to five years.
This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of the Metro East Armed Robbery Initiative announced by Wigginton.
The case is assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel T. Kapsak for prosecution
