Officials have indicted two Madison individuals for robbing two gas stations that took place just hours apart in Windsor in early January. Both are also accused of robbing other spots in the area.
The first robbery took place around 4:45 p.m. on Jan. 8 at the Windsor Travel Plaza Mobil gas station on Lake Road. The second occurred around 2 a.m. on Jan. 9 at the Speedway gas station nearby. At the time, both suspects fled on foot and were not immediately apprehended.
In three separate indictments, three individuals were recently charged with robbing various Dane County businesses in December 2018 and January 2019. The indictments allege that some of the robberies were armed robberies.
Marjory Dingwall, 39, Madison, Wisconsin, is charged with robbing the Stop N’ Go gas station on Monona Drive in Madison on Jan. 6, Orange Tree Imports on Monroe Street in Madison on Jan. 7 and the Mobil gas station on Lake Road in Windsor on Jan. 8. The indictment also charges her with brandishing a firearm during each robbery.
Aaron Stanley, 34, Madison, is charged with robbing the Speedway gas station on Monona Drive in Monona on Dec. 24, the Mobil gas station on Cottage Grove Road in Madison on Dec. 30, the Speedway gas station on Lake Road in Windsor on Jan. 6 and Papa Murphy’s Pizza on East Broadway in Monona on Jan. 15. The indictment also charges him with brandishing a firearm during the Dec. 24 robbery.
In addition to the two Windsor robbery suspects, Eric Clay, 28, Madison, is charged with robbing a Union Cab in Madison on Dec. 14, the BP Stop-N-Go on Tower Drive in Sun Prairie on Dec. 14 and a Green Cab in Madison on Dec. 15. The indictment also charges him with brandishing a firearm during the Dec. 15 robbery of a Green Cab.
If convicted, the defendants face a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison on each robbery count. The charge of brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence carries a mandatory minimum penalty of seven years in federal prison. Federal law requires that any penalty imposed for the charge of brandishing a firearm be served consecutive to any sentence imposed on the robbery charges.
The charges against Dingwall and Stanley are the result of investigations by the Madison Police Department, Monona Police Department and Dane County Sheriff’s Office. The charges against Clay are the result of an investigation by the Madison and Sun Prairie Police Departments. The prosecutions of Dingwall and Stanley are being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rita M. Rumbelow. The prosecution of Clay is being handled by Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Chadwick Elgersma and Assistant U.S. Attorney Rumbelow.
