Photos: Police Looking for Kmart Robbery Suspect

The victim was robbed at gunpoint on Friday.

St. Louis County Police released photos of four individuals they suspect of robbing a victim at gunpoint on Friday morning at the  on Lemay Ferry Road. One suspect is described as a black male in his 20s, approximately 5 feet, 9 inches tall with short hair and eyeglasses. The other three are described as black males in their late teens or early 20s. 

Police said the 37-year-old woman was retrieving something from the backseat of her car when the suspects stole her purse and displayed a semi-automatic handgun. 

The suspects were last seen traveling south on Lemay Ferry Road in a green, early 2000s Chevrolet Impala with a sunroof and spoiler. The men also are suspected in connection with robberies in North County, Crestwood and Shrewsbury, police said. 

The robbery in Shrewsbury occurred  at the Mackenzie Pointe  parking lot.

The victim had just exited her automobile when the Impala drove up next to her, Shrewsbury police said. The suspect in the passenger seat displayed what appeared to be a dark-colored, semi-automatic pistol and demanded the victim’s purse. The suspects then fled the area after taking the purse. No one was injured.

The vehicle believed to have been involved in the incident was spotted by a Shrewsbury police officer in the area of Big Bend and Murdoch Avenues shortly after the robbery. However, the suspects were able to elude the officer when he attempted to stop vehicle. The officer was able to obtain a license plate, Missouri state license WG2-N3N, which is reportedly a stolen license plate from another jurisdiction.

Crestwood police responded to a robbery at 10:45 a.m. on Saturday at Kohl's, 9701 Watson Road. Police said two black males in a green Chevrolet approached a female and displayed a gun. After taking her purse, the suspects headed west. No one was injured. 

Anyone with information should contact Det. Sanders at 314-615-8477 or Crimestoppers at 866-371-TIPS.

Does this relate to the robbery at the Dierberg's parking lot on Watson? Are these the same guys?

Hi Anne, Just spoke to police and yes, these guys are suspected of the Dierberg's robbery over the weekend in Shrewsbury. They haven't released details or photos from that robbery yet, but police think it is the same group.
