SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Greene County prosecutors charged a man on Wednesday afternoon for two robberies of convenience stores earlier that day.  City police arrested David Wright, 39, not long after the second robbery.

In both robbeires, the bandit threatened clerks with a hammer.  The first was just after 4 a.m. at the Kum & Go at 1605 E. Kearney St.  The second was a little later at the Kum & Go at 1550 N. Glenstone Ave.  Police say the robber threatened the clerks with a hammer and ran off with money.

Police arrested Wright in the 1700 block of East Kearney at Rancho Court Motel.  If he's convicted, he could face prison sentences of between 10 and 30 years for each of two counts of first-degree robbery and at least three years for each of two counts of armed criminal action.  A judge set his bond at $200,000.
