SHILOH, Ill. (KMOX) – A Metro East man has been convicted of robbing the same gas station – twice.
A federal jury in Benton, Illinois handed down a guilty verdict against 21-year-old Michael Jackson III of Shiloh.
He was charged with walking into the Midwest Petroleum station in the 1500 block of Hartman Lane in December of 2011, armed with a knife.
He demanded money from the clerk and ran off.
Jackson robbed the same location in March of 2014. Although he was wearing a mask both times, investigators identified him by voice.
Clothing discarded by the robber was found to contain Jackson’s DNA.
