Police recommend 5 armed robbery charges against Skenandore

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Police are recommending five charges of armed robbery against a local man for a series of robberies across the city in November.

They've now publicly identified their suspect as Charles Skenandore, 25. He was arrested at a home on the city's far west side on November 27.

Investigators connected him to these robberies committed over 19 days:

  • Toppers, Main St., on November 6
  • Elf's Gifts, S. MIlitary Ave., on November 8
  • Bake My Day, E. Mason St., on November 17
  • Stoneridge Shell, Velp Ave., on November 21
  • Subway, W. Mason St., on November 25

Skenandore was released from prison in August after serving time for thefts.

As Action 2 News reported on November 29, police believe Skenandore was committing the robberies to buy heroin.

Police also believe before some of the robberies he or a friend called 911 to report a fake crime, such as weapons or a fight, to divert police and slow their response to the robbery call.
