Gas Station Robber Goes to Work Early in Three Oaks

At least one criminal ascribes to the old adage about the early bird getting the worm. Not sure if you can apply the concept of showing up early being a good thing in this particular case, though. Berrien County Sheriff’s Sgt. Sean Soulard is investigating a hold up at the Speedway gasoline service station on West Ash Street in Three Oaks early today.

Soulard says that at 4:31 this morning the cashier at Speedway, located at 4 West Ash Street, was confronted by a man who demanded all of the money in the cash register and hit the bricks on foot headed west.

Police say no weapon was seen in the hold up, and they brought in a K-9 tracking dog, but the robber was never found and remains at large. He is described as being a white male, approximately 5-foot-3 and around 180-pounds. He was last seen wearing a tan shirt and a neon green or yellow baseball cap.

Anybody with information regarding the robbery at Speedway in Three Oaks is asked to contact the Berrien County Sheriff’s Department as soon as possible. Deputies were assisted at the scene by the New Buffalo City Police, Three Oaks Police and the Pokagon Tribal Police.
