Five suspects are now in custody after an early morning gas station robbery in Clark County.

Now, police say the group may be connected to another Winchester robbery.

It was around four this morning when a man entered the Gasoline Alley, pulled a gun on the clerk, and demanded money.

The robber got away with cash, but he wasn't on the loose for long.

The Clark County Sheriffs Department quickly caught the teenage suspect, but he wasn't the only one arrested.

Sheriff Purdue tells 27 NEWSFIRST five individuals of interest were arrested, three that are suspects in today's robbery.

While the names of the suspects have not been released, investigators do say the man who pulled the gun on the clerk is only seventeen years old.

The sheriffs department says the suspects are connected to another armed robbery that took place at a B-Qwick gas station in Winchester just a few days ago.

A gun was also used in that robbery, but this time the suspect covered his face.

The armed robber in this case is another man in the same group of five.

Charges are expected to be filed soon in both robberies.
