The man accused of robbing a Kirksville convenience store is facing charges.
Last week, a man, armed with a knife entered the Casey’s General Store (503 S Franklin) and demanded the clerk hand over money from the register. The robber was given an undisclosed amount of money before fleeing the store on foot. Law Enforcement developed a suspect based on the investigation and on scene witnesses. A few hours later, the suspect, 23-year- old Braxton Sifrit turned himself in at the Police Department. He has since been charged by the Adair County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, with robbery in the first degree, a class A felony, and felony armed criminal action. Police have recovered the stolen cash, cigarettes and knife used during the incident.
