Deputies say three men entered the Citgo gas station at 24039 Red Arrow Highway just before noon.  Two of the men appeared to be shopping in the station, while a third entered a side room where money was located.

A cash drawer that was unlocked at the time was taken, holding a total of $4,479.56.

One of the clerks at the station noticed the suspect near the back room, who then became irate with the clerk before leaving the gas station with the two other men.

No injuries were reported.

Investigators initially believed a newer model white sedan, possibly a Cadillac, may have been involved.  Detectives now believe a green Ford Ranger style pick-up truck may have been involved.

Deputies are also investigating whether or not two other store robberies in Portage the same day with similar descriptions are tied to the same suspects.

Anyone with information on this case is being asked to contact the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department at 269-657-2006.

    I still say that someone was involved as come on they knew exactly where to go and then the drawer happens to be open with that much money just sitting there? I just say this is way to suspicious.
