A man faces criminal charges after Ferguson Police said he robbed the Shop ‘n Save on Old Halls Ferry Road Thursday. Police said Cedric V. Ramsey, 32, of the 600 block of Cheltenham Road in Black Jack, said a cashier was checking out when Ramsey came up behind her and said, “Give me the (expletive) money.” The cashier told police that he pressed something that might have been a handgun against her back.

He is being held in lieu of a $50,000, cash-only bond. For more crime information on Florissant Patch, see the following articles:
