MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Multiple people were taken into custody Friday morning after a robbery in Chisago Lakes turned into a standoff with police.
According to the Lakes Area Police Department, the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office received a call around 7:30 a.m. about a robbery in Chisago Lakes Township. The caller said two people confronted them with a shotgun before driving away.
Based on the caller’s information, police tracked the suspect vehicle to an apartment building in Chisago City. An officer took a 27-year-old man into custody at the scene before requesting backup.
Several agencies responded and evacuated the apartments surrounding the suspect’s. Authorities talked one suspect, a 26-year-old man, out of the apartment, but two more remained inside.
