Two men arrested in armed robbery of Franklin County store

January 14, 2013


Ottawa police arrested two men Friday evening following an armed robbery at a Princeton convenience store, according to a release from the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.

Around 10 p.m., an employee at the Quik Shop, 1445 Highway 59, reported that the store had been robbed at gunpoint of $1,200 by two white men, who fled in a silver car.

Ottawa police later stopped a vehicle on Interstate 35 that matched the suspect car, and arrested three people, one of whom was later released.

The two arrested — William Pope, 31, Garnett, and Dalton Dunnagan, 22, Mound City — were booked into the Franklin County Jail on charges of aggravated robbery and felony theft. Both are being held on a $75,000 bond.

It is either an armed robbery or it isn't. The only question is who committed it. That is where the term allegedly is properly used ... so and so allegedly committed armed robbery or these men are alleged to have committed the armed robbery. I don't think it is in question the store was robbed at gunpoint.

That's a lot of money for a convenience store to have in the cash register. Probably a mom and pop operation. Most chains have strict rules about keeping available cash to a minimum by frequently dropping cash into a safe with a time lock.
