ST. GEORGE – Police took a teenager into custody Tuesday afternoon for allegedly robbing a gas station.

About 3 p.m., police officers responded to a report that Mr. D’s Chevron, 1946 S. River Road, had been robbed, according to a statement from the St. George Police Department.

The teen entered the gas station dressed all in black and handed a clerk a note demanding money. The suspect received an undisclosed amount of money and left the area in what witnesses described as a white passenger car. Witnesses at the scene provided police with photos of the car’s license plate. One of the witnesses also followed the car to a home in St. George. The location was given to the police, who arrived at the home soon after.

According to the statement, police made contact with a 16-year-old juvenile at the home. After being questioned, the juvenile allegedly admitted to the robbery and was taken into custody without incident.

The teen will be booked into the Washington County Juvenile Detention Center, the police said in the statement. The investigation into specific details involving the case is ongoing.

As the case involves an individual under the age of 18, the name of the suspect will not be released to the public.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

    Doesn’t sound like a very thought out robbery. Glad they caught the little puke.

    I’m sure in that area the note was very polite and didn’t offend anyone. I’m sure he was just short on tithe. Lol. Give the kid a break

    You mean the expected church missions and church participation isn’t going to save him?
