The Lake Saint Louis Police Department issued a press release this morning about a robbery at the Shell gas station on Lake Saint Louis Boulevard early Tuesday morning.
Police responded to the gas station at approximately 2:15 a.m. after a report of a female displaying a gun.
Witnesses reported to the police that a male and female subject had entered the gas station.
“The male subject walked to the back of the station where he appeared to fall. A gas station employee and a patron went to assist the male while the female subject grabbed several cartons of cigarettes from behind the counter,” the press release stated.
When the subjects tried to leave, a customer in the gas station attempted to confront the female. The customer stopped when the subject displayed the grip of a handgun in her purse, and the suspects left the scene.
The suspects’ vehicle was stopped in St. Ann and the suspects were taken into custody, police said. The case is still under investigation.
