The dark-colored SUV pulled up, emergency red and blue lights flashing from the dashboard. The driver pulled over - and was robbed.

The real St. Louis police continue to search for the fake ones - two men who pulled off three robberies on Tuesday, each time after posing as officers.

In each case, a sport utility vehicle that looked like an undercover police vehicle pulled behind cars and turned on flashing lights from the dashboard. Motorists, believing they were being stopped by police, pulled to the curb.

A 22-year-old St. Louis man has been sentenced to almost 27 years in prison for his role in the multi-million dollar armed robbery of ATM Solutions.

FBI officials in St. Louis suspect that a man who robbed a Regions Bank branch on Friday is the same man responsible for four other bank robberies in the St. Louis area since December.

The robber entered the bank about 9:15 a.m. Friday, approached a teller, displayed a handgun and demanded money. He left with an undisclosed amount.

The FBI says the same man may have robbed the same bank on Jan. 31, another Regions Bank branch on Feb. 22, the Southern Commercial Bank on Jan. 12 and First Bank on Dec. 6.

A St. Louis teenager has been certified to stand trial as an adult for allegedly driving a van at officers, then pointing a gun at them.

The officers responded by shooting the suspect, 16-year-old Terance Cornell Irons. He is recovering from his wounds and now faces two counts of assault on a law enforcement officer.

Irons does not yet have an attorney.

You may remember a story from November 2010 about the kidnapping of two young girls in connection to the August 2010 robbery of ATM Solutions.

Well, three of four men thought to be involved with that kidnapping have been indicted, according to a release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

Marrion Dotson, 33, Myron Kimble, 22, and Larry Newman, 20, all of St. Louis, were each indicted on one felony count of kidnapping and one felony count of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence, according to the release.

One of the young men, a 16-year-old, was treated for minor wounds before being taken to the Juvenile Building. A 23-year-old man was arrested while police were investigating the robberies.
The incident began around 10:50 Wednesday night, when two men held up a driver attempting to make a pizza delivery in the 4600 block of Michigan. They escaped in a getaway car parked in a nearby alley and driven by a third suspect.
