Pair charged in robbery

June 18, 2003

Cairo-- Two men are charged in the Monday armed robbery of a Cairo restaurant. Thirty-three-year-old Brian John Kestel is the suspected gunman in the holdup of Hungry Howie's.

Thirty-nine-year-old Walter Woodward is accused of driving the get-away car.

Kestel is also charged with the armed robbery of Lee's Convenience Store in Cairo three weeks ago. He was arrested last night after police received a tip about someone discharging a firearm.

Investigators found a ski mask, hooded sweatshirt, gloves and a pistol, all of which matched the description of items the bandit was wearing.
