St. Louis County Man Accused in Armed Robberies

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis County man is facing multiple charges for a series of armed robberies last winter.

Authorities on Monday filed charges against 20-year-old Joshua Cosby. He is charged with 16 counts of robbery, attempted robbery, assault and armed criminal action.

Cosby is jailed without bond.

The crimes occurred in Florissant and elsewhere in north St. Louis County from Jan. 15 through Feb. 25. Police are investigating to see if Cosby is also responsible for other unsolved crimes.
