EDENVILLE, MI (WNEM) -
The Midland County Sheriff's department told WNEM.com that deputies took two juveniles into custody in relation to an armed robbery incident on Monday morning.
Midland County Sheriff Scott Stephenson said Vincent's Service Station, located at 6674 north M-30 in Edenville, was robbed around 11:15 a.m. by a lone suspect.
That suspect entered the gas station wearing a black ski type mask, and carrying a baseball bat. The suspect demanded money from the cashier, and after obtaining an unknown amount of cash, the suspect then left the store southbound.
Stephenson stated in a release that based on the initial investigation, it appeared that there were two suspects involved in the incident. Both suspects were described as white males in their teens, standing approximately 5'10" with thin builds.
The suspect who entered the store was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with red and white lettering, gray sweat pants, a black mask and sunglasses. The second suspect did not enter the store and was believed to be driving the getaway vehicle.
The suspects left eastbound on Moore Street. The suspect vehicle was described as a red and silver small pick-up truck with rust on it.
After investigating, two suspects were identified, interviewed, and taken into custody. Deputies said both juveniles are 16-years old. They are currently lodged in the Midland County Juvenile Detention Center.
