GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A suspect in the armed robbery of a Green Bay gas station has been arrested.

Green Bay Police say tips from witnesses, neighbors and others helped them track down the 25-year-old man and his vehicle last Thursday.

On June 2, cops were called to the U-Pump Citgo at 1233 Velp Avenue around 6:15 p.m. Witnesses say a man showed a handgun, demanded money and then ran from the store to a nearby vehicle.

Authorities say the man robbed the gas station to help fund his heroin addiction. They did not want to publicize the arrest because they wanted to show lineups to witnesses.

The man has not been formally charged yet.
