Police: Man robs gas station, then gets robbed

Posted: Updated:

A Des Moines man has been arrested after he told police he was robbed by someone after he had robbed a gas station.

The Des Moines Register reports a 24-year-old man was arrested Monday night.

Police say they responded to a report of a robbery of a gas station and found a man who matched the description of the suspect while on their way to the scene.

Police say the suspect told them he had robbed the gas station convenience store so he could go drink at a nearby bar.

He told police a black car that was in the gas station's parking lot during the robbery followed him to the bar. Once there, the driver of the car told him to hand over the money.

The suspect faces charges of aggravated theft and violation of probation.
