Two Arrested in Dansville Armed Robbery

CREATED Sep. 24, 2012

Two men are in the Ingham County jail awaiting arraignment on armed robbery charges. They are accused of holding up the Dansville Gas Station in Dansville early Monday morning.

A sheriff's department spokesman say they went into the station at 978 Jackson Street in Jackson shortly after 5:00 a.m. One was armed with a shotgun.

They took cash from the register, ran out to a waiting car and drove off. A customer in the station was able to get a description of the car and gave it to Sheriff's deputies.

The car was found abandoned a couple of hours later at the intersection of Catholic Church and Williams Roads. A Michigan State Police tracking dog and a helicopter were called in to search a nearby field.

The suspects were found in the field and arrested.

One of the suspects is 22-years-old. The other is 20-years-old. Both are from the area.

Their arraignment is expected on Tuesday.
