PD: Armed teen robs west Madison gas station

4th gas station to be robbed in the past week

MADISON, Wis. - A Madison teenager robbed a west Madison gas station at gunpoint Sunday afternoon, police said. 

Madison police said officers responded to the Citgo at 4602 Verona Road at 1:30 p.m. for a report of a robbery. A male had entered the gas station with a handgun and demanded money. The clerk put an undisclosed amount of money in a purse. The suspect fled on foot in a west-northwest direction, police said.

Police said Monday morning that officers used area surveillance video on Sunday to identify a getaway car and the description was shared with on-duty officers.

A west district officer spotted the car just after 5 p.m. on Mineral Point Road near Grand Canyon Drive, according to the report. The car pulled into a parking lot and two people got out. A weapon was found in the car. 

Cody D. Shell, 17, was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery. Shell is also a person of interest in a series of recent holdups that targeted area gas stations and convenience stores, police said.
