SCOTTVILLE — Deputies from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, along with officers from Scottville Police Department worked throughout the day gathering clues and evidence to the whereabouts of the person who robbed the Admiral gas station early Tuesday morning. See related story here.  The gas station was robbed shortly after 2:30 a.m. by a woman wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

“I’m optimistic we will get to the bottom of this,” Sheriff Cole told MCP Tuesday night. “We have some work to do yet but we can’t rush through this case. We are sorting out time lines, video and evidence.”

Cole said the sheriff’s K-9 Cash played a significant role in the investigation. They believe the suspect headed west from the gas station.

The gas station has seen its share of robberies. It was robbed in 2004, which resulted in a high speed chase into Lake County. It was also robbed in the mid-1990s. During that robbery, Scottville Police Officer Steve Hansen, who is now chief deputy of the sheriff’s office, was injured after the suspect was shot in a scuffle.
