Madison police ask public’s help in identifying automotive shop robbery
MADISON, Wis. — Police are asking for the public’s help in a robbery investigation involving an east Madison automotive shop Wednesday night.
Officers responded around 6:35 p.m. to Wayne’s Automotive at 220 Cottage Grove Road for a report of an armed robbery, according to a release.
On Friday afternoon, police released two surveillance images showing the robber and asked for the public’s help in identifying the man.
An employee told police the robber had been in the shop for some time waiting for a ride, according to police. The man attempted to pay for items, but when the worker opened the cash register, the robber told the worker to keep it open because he was being robbed.
