Two men charged with 7-Eleven robbery spree
After multiple 7-Eleven stores were robbed at gunpoint last week, two men have been charged with conspiring to interfere with commerce by robbery.
21-year-old Trey Hasegawa and 26-year-old Matthew Middleton were charged with conspiracy -- carrying a maximum term of 20 years imprisonment and a maximum fine of $250,000. Both men are in custody pending further proceedings.
U.S. Attorney for the District of Hawaii, Kenji M. Price, alleges that over a two day span, Hasegawa and Middleton targeted three convenience stores.
On July 8 and 9, cashiers at three 7-Eleven stores handed money to a man brandishing what appears to be a handgun. The total amount of money taken is currently undetermined.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Honolulu Police Department are all investigating the case.
