Rockford ‘Casey’s’ hit by armed robbers

Late Sunday evening, at 10:50 p.m. the Wright County Sheriff’s Office responded to a hold up call the Rockford Casey’s gas station and convenience store located on the south side of Highway 55, on the 8400 block.

Deputies confirmed this upon arrival, and got a description of the suspects from an employee. They are described as being two Caucasian males, roughly six feet tall with thin builds. They were wearing black hoodies and had bandanas over their faces. Both were armed, one with what the employee described as a black handgun, and one with a short barreled shotgun. They left the store with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The subjects may have been on foot. The department dispatched its canine unit to the area, but nothing significant was uncovered.

The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office and the Minnesota State Patrol assisted at the scene. The Wright County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate.
