Robbery suspect turns 18, will face charges as adult

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

One of two teenagers accused in armed robberies at adjoining stores Aug, 13 has turned 18 and has been transferred to adult court.

Chris Quashon Kinzer of Columbia is being held as an adult on two counts of aggravated robbery, Detective Sgt. Brian Crews of the Shelbyville Police Department said. Bond is set at $100,000.

Kinzer, another teen and two adults are accused of robbing Economy Liquors and P & M Market.

Four loaded guns were recovered along with a backpack filled with money, liquor and two cell phones taken in the robberies. The backpack was left in a field after the suspects found their haul too heavy to carry while eluding police, who arrived as they were leaving the store.
