On Monday, January 3, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged Terrence Darnell Gleason, 51, with four counts each of Robbery 1st Degree and Armed Criminal Action and one count each of Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Stealing. The court ordered him held on a $1 million bond, cash only, no 10%.
According to a probable cause statement signed by a Normandy Police Department detective, Gleason targeted QuikTrip franchises in St. Louis County on December 5, December 6, December 10, December 11, and December 12, 2021. He stated that he used to date a woman who worked for QT, so he was familiar with their security procedure and system.
In the first three instances, he used the threat of a handgun to rob the store of cartons of cigarettes. On December 11, he stole cartons of cigarettes without using a handgun. On December 12, he stole approximately $85 in U.S. currency and two donuts with the threat of a handgun.
He targeted the QT at 9099 Natural Bridge Rd. on December 5, 6 and 11. He targeted the QT at 5909 Howdershell Rd. on December 10. He targeted the QT at 11150 St. Charles Rock Rd. on December 12.
After he was read his Miranda rights, Gleason admitted to committing these crimes. He also admitted that he uses a controlled substance and that he sells all the cigarettes to a local grocery store to make money for his drug habit. He also admitted that his nickname is Greedy.
The defendant is a convicted felon, having pleaded guilty or been found guilty of Stealing $750 or More on September 2, 2021, in the 21st Circuit Court of St. Louis County, Missouri
