Robbery Suspects In Custody

Two people are in custody
after a robbery Friday afternoon in Fond du Lac. Fond du Lac Police were called
to Heights Finance on RIckmeyer Drive at 4:35 pm for a report of a male suspect
that had entered the business and demanded cash. He ran away with an
undisclosed amount. A short time later, officers located a car that matched the
description of the one involved in the robbery on west Johnson Street. When
officers pulled the car over, the man ran from the car while a woman stayed
behind. Officers set up a perimeter and began a foot pursuit with help from a
K-9 unit. The man was taken into custody at Valvoline on West Johnson Street,
while the woman was taken into custody at the location of the traffic stop. No
employees, law enforcement officers or members of the public were injured.
There was no threat of or use of a weapon during the robbery, which remains
under investigation. Assisting the Fond du Lac Police Department were the Fond
du Lac County Sheriff’s Office, Wisconsin State Patrol and the Wisconsin
Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation.
