King County prosecutors have charged two men and a teenage in connection with six takeover-style robberies at gas station convenience stores in King County in recent weeks.
Christopher J. Manning, 24, and Joseph M. Campbell, 16, were each charged with six counts of first-degree robbery, the prosecutor’s office reported today. Campbell was charged as an adult. Bao Quoc Ly, 23, was charged with two counts of first-degree robbery.
The three, all of whom are Auburn residents, are being held in jail in lieu of $300,000. They’ll be arraigned on the robbery charges Aug. 25 at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent.
The three were arrested earlier this week in connection with the hold-ups at convenience stores in Federal Way, Maple Valley, Covington and Bothell. During the early morning robberies, the suspects wielded guns and donned masks.
