Arrest made in convenience store robbery | Crime
On Sunday, April 22, a man robbed the Glencoe Junction Flash Market. After getting the cash, Fulton County Sheriff Kenneth "Buck" Foley says the man ran out of the store, heading south on Highway 289.
Officers from multiple agencies were called in to hunt for the man. They set up vehicle checkpoints, drove up and down the highways and roads, and even searched by foot.
On Thursday, April 26, the sheriff's office received a call about a man who resembled the suspect walking north on Highway 289.
Deputies were dispatched to the scene where they made a positive identification and arrested Brandon Bingham of Thayer, Missouri.
According to the sheriff, Bingham told investigators he committed the robbery but had "acted alone." Bingham also reportedly said he had been living in the woods near the Morriston area where his girlfriend, Brittany Burch, lived.
While she was being questioned, Burch reportedly told officers that earlier on Sunday she and Bingham "planned to rob a convenience store." She also told investigators she dropped Bingham off at the Hillbilly U-Pump on Sunday then picked him up five minutes later, the sheriff reported.
Bingham and Burch are both being charged with robbery and theft of property.
