nullTwo female suspects and a third male suspect in a Solon Springs armed robbery were taken into custody Monday night, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

Those female suspects, according to authorities, are ages 17 and 18. They say the 16-year-old male was arrested after a short standoff.

All three were arrested in Sawyer County. Douglas County Chief Deputy Gerald Moe says the arrests were made based on information received shortly after Monday's 6 p.m. news.

The three suspects are accused of being involved in an armed robbery at JT's One Stop at 8:30 on Saturday night. They say two suspects came into the store, bought a bottle of water and while the clerk was ringing them up, one showed a gun and demanded money.

Authorities explained that a third suspect was waiting in a a vehicle.

They also believe the suspects ate at the Covered Wagon restaurant in Hawthorne, and left without paying just before the alleged armed robbery.
