16-Year-Old Suspect in Circle K Robbery Will Stand Trial as Adult

Florissant Police said the teen and a 21-year-old woman robbed the Circle K gas station July 14.

A 16-year-old Ferguson resident was certified to stand trial as an adult after Florissant Police said he helped rob the Circle K gas station in Florissant.

Kenneth Taper, 16, of the 6100 block of Behle Avenue in Ferguson, was charged Tuesday with first-degree robbery.

Florissant Police said that Taper and Tanisha Grayer, 21, held up the Circle K, 1545 South New Florissant Road, at about 2:55 a.m. July 14.

Grayer was charged July 17 with the robbery.

Police said Grayer showed the clerk something that appeared to be a handgun as Taper demanded the cash. Taper took $52 from the register and the two left, according to the police report.

Bail for Taper was set at $50,000.
