ST. LOUIS COUNTY, MO (KTVI) – The St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office charged a 27-year-old Cahokia, Illinois man for his role in looting a convenience store during the rioting and unrest in Ferguson in November 2014.

According to prosecutors, Roy Brown was among several people who smashed their way into the Dellwood Market on Chambers Road and stole several items before fleeing.

The looting occurred November 24 and November 25 in the hours following the announcement that a grand jury would not indict a Ferguson police officer in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Prosecutors said Roy Brown admitted to unlawfully entering the Dellwood Market and stealing liquor.

Brown was charged with second-degree burglary and theft/stealing. His bond was set at $10,000.
