Police: Worker reports robbery, then clams up

STERLING – A convenience store reported late Wednesday that an employee was missing, but after he turned up and mentioned a robbery, he refused to make a statement to police, an official said Thursday.

Casey’s General Store reported the employee missing just before midnight Wednesday, which led police to open an investigation. The employee later turned himself in to police about 5 or 5:30 a.m Thursday after he found out they were looking for him, Sterling Police Sgt. Steve Hubbard said. During his discussions with officers, he mentioned something about a robbery, Hubbard said.

After talking very briefly with police about the robbery, Hubbard said, the employee decided he didn’t want police to investigate the incident and declined to make a statement.

“We spent a lot of time on it last night,” Hubbard said, “and if he doesn’t want to come clean about what allegedly took place, then we’re not going to pursue it.”
