Monticello Robbery 08 Oct 13

Wright County authorities are investigating a robbery that occurred Saturday night at a video game store.

At about 10pm, the Wright County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Monticello Game Stop at 9241 Cedar on a report of an armed robbery that had occurred about a half-hour before.  

Employees reported they were approached while closing the store by a male with a handgun wearing blue jeans, dark colored tennis shoes, a gray zip up jacket and a black ski mask, who ordered them back into the store. The suspect subsequently left the store after taking an undetermined amount of cash and property from the inside store.

The area was searched for the suspect with negative results.
