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.

    Guess it was only a matter of time till the only store for 10- 30 miles that stays oepn all night got robbed. They only have 1 person working at night which shows that the owner is the only such owner to run a store past 10pm with only 1 person running it. Occasionaly I used to go sit with a freind of mine that worked there late at night so he wouldnt be such a target. Every other store Ive heard of keeps at leats 2 people in stores like that after dark especially if open all night. But one thing I will say is the madison county sherrifs deputys patrol the store at leats a few times a night. As they know thats the only place open and the poor man working for $6 and hr isnt exactly happy to be there.
