LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Police say strip clubs and substance abuse drove two men to a series of holdups throughout Kentuckiana.
The judge called the case of Shaundrell Robinson and Troy Gains "unbelievable," telling Gains, who works at GE, "Talk about ruining your life -- bond is $100,000....How in the world do you ruin a good job like that at General Electric....A lot of people would kill to get those kind of jobs."
The two men were arraigned on nearly two dozen counts of armed robbery.
Police say Robinson and Gains's string of heists began in November and continued almost daily up until last week. It ended at the Speedway station off Preston Highway at four Saturday morning, where detectives say they caught Gains in the middle of a robbery and Robinson in a getaway car a short time later.
More charges are pending.
WDRB's Gilbert Corsey spoke with detectives in Clarksville this morning who say these are the men behind a holdup at Stumpy's Food Mart where surveillance video appears to show someone shooting at the store clerk. They're also believed to be linked to holdups in Radcliff and Jeffersonville.
Both Robinson and Gains have lengthy criminal rap sheets, so the judge increased their bond this morning to $100,000 apiece.
Detectives say they used the money on strip clubs and substance abuse, and instead of having to go to work.
Store Manager Kanubhai Patel was grateful for the arrests, saying, "The last 10 days I feel like, in the dark, oh what are you gonna do? My eyes were all the time on the outside and a little something makes noise and I feel scared...oh, that's now gone, yeah."
