An 18-year-old San Pierre man was arrested Wednesday night on preliminary charges of Armed Robbery and Felony Intimidation.
North Judson Police Chief, Doug Vessely, said that just after 8:30 p.m. CT, Johnathan Chambers, wearing a rubber mask and a camouflage jacket, entered the Carpenter’s Marathon Oil Station in North Judson with a knife and demanded cash from the gas station clerk. After he was unsuccessful in getting cash, Chambers was scared off and fled the area on foot.
North Judson Officer, Mathew Anderson, apprehended the suspect and after a short interrogation, Chambers was transported to the Starke County Jail and charged with Armed Robbery and Felony Intimidation. A full report has been provided to the Starke County Prosecutor’s Office for formal charges.
