Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies caught up with a pair of unsuccessful robbers.
Joshua Benton and Patrick Rubach face first-degree robbery charges for crimes at a Circle K Convenience store in High Ridge and Steak n Shake in Fenton. Deputies say that they received a call from Benton to report that Rubach, who is his roommate, committed the crimes. After an investigation, authorities discovered that both men were involved in the crimes.
At both the Circle K and Steak n Shake, deputies say the men pulled a gun on employees and demanded money. And at both places, the men left with no money. The pair are held on a quarter-million dollar bond.
