Petro Mart Robber Escapes by Foot in Columbia
COLUMBIA - Columbia police officers are still looking Friday for the alleged armed robber of a Petro Mart on Rangeline Road.
Officers were dispatched to the store around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 21, shortly after the suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash on foot, officers said.
The suspect entered the store with a knife and demanded money from the clerks.
Officers said a Boone County K-9 assisted successfully in tracking the suspect and led handlers to a parking lot. However, officers said it is likely the suspect entered a vehicle there and left the area.
