(Quincy, Ill)–Police apprehend two suspects in connection with the Saturday morning robbery of the G & H Shortstop Convenience Store on 6th Street.

Investigators developed information that led them to two juveniles walking in the area of 8th and Monroe Streets at 3:47 Saturday afternoon.  Both were taken into custody.  Officers say one is a 14 year-old Quincy resident and the other is a 15 year-old resident of Ursa.

Both suspects were taken to the Adams County Juvenile Detention Center.

Police say the gun believed to be used in the robbery was actually a pellet gun that resembled a semi-automatic handgun.  It was recovered at a Quincy residence.

Original Story:
