Brandon Reeder Charged With Aggravated Robbery
A Casper teenager is accused of robbing two gas stations this past weekend.
Seventeen-year old Brandon Reeder is being charged as an adult and is facing two charges of aggravated robbery.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say on Friday, and Sunday evenings (April 3rd and 5th), calls came in regarding a robbery, first at the Ridley's Family Market Gas Station, near the corner of 2nd and Wyoming Boulevard and then at the Homax Station on the 600 block of South Poplar Street.
In both cases, the robber brandished a revolver and was wearing a black ski mask with black plastic eyeglasses.
Police later determined after the first robbery that a person holding a ski mask and matching the earlier description, was at another gas station.
Officers were able to obtain surveillance video, and matched it to school records and to Reeder's Facebook page.
Two other people told investigators that a short time before the first robbery, they had seen a person putting on a ski mask while walking on East Second Street.
Reeder was eventually found by police and taken into custody.
When interviewed he denied committing the robberies, but officers were eventually able to locate the clothes identified in both robbery instances, and found the gun in Reeder's vehicle.
He is being held on $25,000 bond awaiting trial and could face between five-to-25 years in prison on each charge, if convicted.
Prosecutors say Reeder was on probation on an unrelated matter, at the time the robberies took place.
