St. Louis Man Pleads Guilty to Armed Robbery and Brandishing a Firearm

ST. LOUIS – Dominick Anderson, 31, of St. Louis, Missouri, appeared before United States District Court Judge Henry E. Autrey on today’s date and pleaded guilty to armed robbery and brandishing a firearm in furtherance of that crime.

On August 25, 2019, as part of a prearranged drug deal, Anderson and a male accomplice arrived at the victim’s residence in a vehicle driven by a female accomplice. Anderson and his male accomplice entered the victim’s residence to buy methamphetamine from the victim. When the victim showed Anderson the methamphetamine, Anderson pulled a gun on the victim and demanded that the victim handover the methamphetamine. The victim refused. The victim told Anderson and his male accomplice to leave the victim’s residence. Anderson shot the victim in the stomach and stole the victim’s methamphetamine. Anderson and his male accomplice exited the residence and entered the vehicle of their female accomplice and fled the scene. The victim called 911 and was taken to the hospital for his gunshot wound. An investigation led to the arrest of Anderson.

Anderson’s sentencing hearing is set for October 6, 2021.

This case was investigated by the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Szczucinski is handling this matter.
