A Kenosha man appeared in court Thursday on a felony charge for allegedly robbing a Racine gas station.

Quentin T. Pompy, 49, is charged with robbery with threat of force for allegedly robbing a Speedway on Washington Avenue in Racine. 

The Racine County District Attorney’s office has also charged Pompy with a drug-related felony. In that case, Pompy faces a charge of manufacture/deliver cocaine (less than or equal to 1 gram) on or near a park.

The burglary charge carries repeater status. Possession with intent to deliver/distribute a controlled substance on or near a park is the modifier on the drug charge.

Pompy is already in the process of fighting 10 felonies in Kenosha County Circuit Court, each related to burglary, damage and theft.  

Racine County criminal complaint

According to a criminal complaint filed in February, Racine Police responded to the Speedway gas station at 4620 Washington Ave. in Racine around 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 29, 2019. There, an employee told them Pompy had come into the store and ordered cigarettes. He asked the clerk for six cartons. As policy, the gas station chain only sells five at a time. 

After the clerk explained this to Pompy, he asked the clerk to lean in. After the clerk refused, Pompy said, “This is a stick up, give me the cigarettes,” according to the complaint.

Pompy then allegedly reached across the counter, grabbing two of the cartons before leaving the gas station without paying for them. 

While Racine Police initially looked for Pompy, Kenosha Police Department officers arrested him on Dec. 30, 2019, on a probation hold here.

The Racine County investigator states that Kenosha Police charged Pompy “in connection to seven investigations by KPD and would ultimately be charged in Kenosha County case 20CF48,” according to the complaint.
