NEENAH, WI (WTAQ) - Neenah police had a busy morning Friday.

First, officers were called to the robbery of the Express Convenience Store on S. Commercial Street just before 7 a.m.

Authorities say a male suspect held up the store wearing a nylon stocking over his head and socks on his hands. Police Chief Kevin Wilkinson says he got away with cash and that no one was hurt.

During the investigation, Wilkinson says officers found snow tracks leading west from the gas station and a K-9 unit from the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department was called in to assist.

While officers followed the trail, they came upon some evidence on the ground. As they kept going, they came to a house in the 300 block of Winneconne Avenue and found a meth lab in the garage of the home.

Authorities now say both incidents are connected. Neenah police say the home belongs to the robbery suspect.

He was later arrested after authorities were called to the Appleton Public Library for a theft complaint.

The man’s name is not being released.
