Armed robbery reported at Escanaba gas station
ESCANABA, MI-- Three people have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery in Escanaba.
Escanaba Public Safety officers were dispatched to the Admiral gas station Sunday around 7:45 a.m. The clerk told them a lone masked man walked into the station brandishing a large hunting knife and demanding money. The clerk gave the subject an undetermined amount of cash and the subject fled on foot.
Officers set up a perimeter to utilize the department’s K9, “Dag.” The dog was able to track the suspect to a residence on the north side of the city. Officers set up a perimeter around the house, then executed a search warrant that uncovered evidence they say will aid in the investigation.
Three people in the house were arrested on charges ranging from armed robbery to lying to a police officer while investigating a serious felony. They remain in the Delta County Jail, pending arraignment.
