Teen charged in robbery

A Jefferson City man is charged with helping to rob a man at gunpoint while he was pumping gas.

Richard McCalip III, 16, 632 Locust St., is charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.

A Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement shows the incident occurred in June at Break Time, 627 Clark Ave.

As the victim pumped gas, an accomplice with McCalip, not named in court documents, offered to sell the victim drugs.

The victim refused and as he was starting to drive away, McCalip’s accomplice got into the victim’s car while McCalip blocked the driver’s door so the victim couldn’t flee.

McCalip’s accomplice then pulled a handgun, pointed it at the victim and demanded his property.

McCalip and his accomplice got away with $35 and the victim’s iPhone.

McCalip was identified through surveillance footage at Break Time.
