(Napoleon, Ind.) - Not one, but two armed robberies were reported in Ripley County on Thursday.
Eagle 99.3 told you already about a 3:00 a.m. holdup at the Huck’s gas station in Batesville in which the robber got away. There was a second hold-up in Napoleon about 6:00 p.m.
In the later robbery, a man entered the Youngman’s Marathon in Napoleon, pointed a gun at the clerk and took money. The suspect left the store on foot.
The suspect was described as being about 5'6” to 5'8” tall and weighing about 130-140 lbs. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark colored work-type jacket with hood, and dark colored tennis shoes.
It’s unclear if the two robberies are connected. The Ripley County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating.
Anybody with information that can help identify a suspect is asked to call the sheriff’s office at (812) 689-5555.
