BD Robbery Suspect Charged

Bond was set at $5,000 cash when a 36-year-old Fox Lake man was charged for robbing Coyote Gas and Liquor in Beaver Dam. Donald McRae made his initial appearance in Dodge County Court Wednesday on a felony theft charge. The convenience store was robbed Monday. McRae allegedly got away with about $300 cash after implying he had a gun and told a clerk to “get away or I’ll start shooting.” He was caught about 10 hours later after police released a photo of him. His parents identified him from the photo and told police he has a drug problem and where he usually got his drugs. An officer picked him up during a traffic stop near that location. He has a preliminary hearing next Thursday.
