A Wichita man was indicted Wednesday on charges of robbing a QuikTrip.

Samuel L. Vliet, 25, Wichita, is charged with one count of committing a robbery at a commercial establishment. 

In court documents, investigators allege that on July 18, Vliet was wearing a red bandana over his mouth when he entered a QuikTrip at 110 S. Rock Road in Wichita. He told a store employee, “Give me all the money in the register.”

Later, police lifted fingerprints from a door that the store employee said the robber touched as he left. A forensic examination using the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) matched the fingerprint to Vliet.

If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000. The FBI’s Safe Streets Task Force investigated.
