Police say Moore walked into Behrmann’s Tavern in south St. Louis Just after midnight on August 28, 2019. He demanded that the bartender and customers get on the ground before he robbed them.  He got away with about $300 and a cellphone.

Behrmann’s is located off Meramec and is the second oldest bar in St. Louis still operating under its original name.
