LANSING - Police say the co-conspirator in the robbery of a 7-11 convenience store made it easier to find the thief. Lansing police were called to the 7-11 at Jolly and Aurelius at about 4 o'clock Monday morning. The female clerk there told police a man with a handgun had entered the story through the back. She said she was assaulted before the robber took money and the store's surveillance videotape.
While responding to the robbery, a Lansing officer spotted a suspicious vehicle nearby in the area of Mt. Hope and Aurelius. The car refused to stop for police. A brief pursuit ended when the suspect got out of his car at Ada and Baker Streets and ran away. A Lansing K-9 unit tracked the man to the 1500 block of Donora, where he was arrested without further incident.
Lansing police Capt. Ray Hall tells News 10 that the female clerk provided an accurate description of the man she said robbed the 7-11. During the course of the investigation, police say that they discovered the clerk was in on the robbery. Her boyfriend was the thief.
The 22-year-old man and 23-year-old woman are expected to be charged with larceny of a building, a felony.
