Police Track Down Robbery Suspects

Two suspects are now in custody in connection with an early Thursday morning robbery in Madison County.

Police were called to the Shell station on Irvine Road at around 1:40 a.m.

Police say a man wearing a mask and gloves implied he had a weapon, robbed the clerk, then ran from the store.

Police say the clerk followed the robber outside and was able to write down a license plate number from the getaway car.

Police say they found the vehicle on Irvine View and later discovered a cab had picked up a man and a woman in that area.

The cab had taken the couple to the Red Roof Inn in Richmond where police say they tracked them down.

Police arrested Steven C. Chaney and Crystal D. Ashcraft. They've both been charged with Robbery 1st and Possession of Drug paraphernalia.

The suspects are lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
