Springfield SWAT Arrests Armed Robbery Suspect
A man in his 20's was arrested, and multiple potential accomplices were brought in for questioning Thursday night after an armed robbery in the parking lot outside of the Walmart on North Dirksen Parkway.
Springfield Police, the Sangamon County Sheriff's Office and Secretary of State Police tracked the man down at a trailer near the intersection of North Grand Avenue and Matthew Street. Police said the man was refusing to come out of the trailer, but they surrounded it on all sides and brought their armored car to get him to surrender without anyone getting injured.
The Springfield Police Department says there is a lot of information they can't provide yet because it would jeopardize the investigation, which is still in the very early stages.
