LANSING, Mich.– The Eaton County Sheriff’s Office is seeking a suspect in connection to an armed robbery at a gas station on Wednesday.

Around 6:40am on Wednesday, investigators say a woman went inside the Shell Gas Station on Waverly Road in Lansing.  She showed a silver revolver and demanded money.

After taking an unknown amount of money, the woman took off. A K-9 unit was able to lead police to a small access road where she may have gotten into a vehicle to escape.

The woman is described as being white, approximately 5’10”, and was wearing black sweat pants with a gray stripe and a gray hoodie. She was also wearing a white knit mask with a cobra design around the mouth.

If you have any information, you are encouraged to contact Detective Burton at the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office at (517) 323-8489.
