EAST ST. LOUIS — A 37-year-old man faces multiple counts in connection with the armed robbery of the Belleville Domino’s Pizza in mid-summer.
U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois Stephen R. Wigginton said Sterling D. Gould, from Belleville, was charged by complaint on Nov. 10 in federal court in East St. Louis for one count of interference with commerce by robbery, which is a violation of the Hobbs Act; one count of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence, and one count of unlawful possession of a firearm by a previously convicted felon, in connection with the armed robbery on July 12.
The case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of the Metro East Armed Robbery Initiative announced by Wigginton. Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel T. Kapsak is prosecuting the case.
