TOPEKA (KSNT) – The Topeka Police Department (TPD) announced two suspects were in custody in connection to a robbery at a Topeka Kwik Shop.
Officers responded to a report of a robbery around 10 p.m. Monday at the Kwik Shop at Southwest 21st and Randolph Ave, according to a press release from the TPD. Citizens provided information leading officers to a suspect vehicle.
Before 11:30 p.m., officers saw the vehicle at 20th and Southwest Lincoln Street. Officers attempted a traffic stop, but the driver ran from police. Citizens gave officers information leading them back to the 2000 block of SW Lincoln where the car was reportedly parked in a garage, according to TPD.
The people in the car ran into a house on the property. The department said police tried to contact the people inside but were unsuccessful, so they got a warrant to search the home.
