MADISON -- A Reedsburg man was indicted in federal court Wednesday for six armed robberies and one attempted armed robbery in Madison, all in September and October.

Keith Gary, 46, was originally indicted in December on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. But a federal grand jury issued a new indictment on Wednesday that included the robberies.

Gary is accused of robberies at Klinke Cleaners, 6698 Odana Road, on Sept. 18; McDonald’s, 4687 Verona Road, on Sept. 21; Klinke Cleaners, 939 S. Park St., on Sept. 22; Arby’s restaurant, 601 S. Gammon Road, on Sept. 24; Sally Beauty Supply, 678 S. Whitney Way, on Oct. 4; and Papa John’s Pizza, 2604 E. Washington Ave., on Oct. 29.

Gary is also accused of attempting to rob McDonald’s, 2015 W. Broadway, on Oct. 29.

The indictment also alleges that during the Sept. 18 and 21 robberies, Gary brandished a firearm.

Gary faces up to 20 years in prison on each robbery charge, 10 years for the felon in possession charge, and a mandatory minimum of seven years for one count of brandishing a firearm, to be served consecutively to any penalty for the Sept. 18 robbery.

Gary also faces a mandatory minimum of 25 years in prison for the second brandishing charge, consecutive to the penalty imposed for the first brandishing charge and any penalty for the Sept. 21 robbery.

According to state Department of Corrections records, Gary was released from prison in March and was on extended supervision for a 2006 robbery conviction.
