Rochester Liquor Store Robbery Suspects Had Four Bottles Left
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – More information has been released about the two juveniles who were arrested as suspects in last week’s armed robbery of a Rochester liquor store.
A Rochester Police Department spokesman says the 16-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl were arrested Friday on aggravated robbery charges. As of Tuesday morning, a third suspect was still being sought.
The three are suspected of stealing six bottles of liquor from the Andy’s store on 41st St NW Thursday evening.
Before leaving the store, one flashed a gun at an employee. Another employee chased the three and as he rounded the corner of a building, one of the suspects pointed a gun at him and then ran off.
During the arrests, officers recovered four of the stolen liquor bottles. They also seized an airsoft gun that may have been used in the robbery. The spokesman says it looks like a real gun.
