LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a local suspect had a craving for White Castles after he robbed a woman and took her credit cards.
According to an arrest report, 18-year-old Richard D. Burton was on Rockery Way, south of the intersection of S. 7th St. and W. Hill St. on Monday, when he forced a woman to the ground at gunpoint and took her iPhone and credit cards.
Police say he then went to White Castle and used the woman's debit card to make a $15.33 purchase.
Burton was arrested the same day and police say he admitted to other robberies.
Because of those alleged confessions, Burton has also been charged in connection with an Oct. 26 armed robbery -- also on Rockery Way -- in which Burton allegedly took $40 from a woman as he was walking to his apartment.
Additionally, Burton is accused in an Oct. 28 armed robbery in which he took a credit card, assorted keys and $20 from a victim.
Burton is charged with three counts of first degree robbery and one count of fraudulent use of a credit card.
