Juvenile Suspect Accused Of Gas Station Robberies In Custody
Casper Police say they have arrested a juvenile suspect in connection with two robberies at gas stations during the Easter weekend.
Since he's a juvenile, Police can not release the 17 year old's name, but say he was arrested at about 10pm on Tuesday, April 7th, and he acted alone in the robberies.
The first robbery happened at about 10pm on Friday, April 3rd, at the Ridley's Family Market Gas Station, located near the intersection of 2nd and Wyoming Boulevard.
A masked man entered the station with a handgun, stole several hundred dollars and then fled the scene on foot.
The other incident happened Sunday evening, April 5th, at the Homax Gas Station on the 600 block of South Poplar Street.
Police say they got a tip when the suspect was seen at another gas station with the mask, and the suspect was on camera.
The weapon has not yet been recovered, but Police say they plan to search the suspect's vehicle.
It is unknown whether the Natrona County District Attorney's Office will charge the juvenile as an adult or not.
