Three people in a black Cadillac pulled into the Fuel-N-Go in
Coburg, Oregon, about 11:35 p.m. One man got out of the vehicle and
entered the convenience store. Motioning as though he had a gun in
his sweatshirt, he demanded money from the store clerk, who gave him
about $200 in cash. Apparently dissatisfied, the robber threatened
to kill her. The clerk then drew her own gun, and the man ran out to
the parking lot where he fought with a male attendant. Meanwhile,
the clerk followed the thug outside and, when he motioned again to
indicate he was armed, she fired a shot that blew out the Cadillac's
back window. The robber then jumped into the car, and the threesome
took off as remnants of their ill-gotten gains floated through the
air. Two men and a woman surrendered to a police canine unit soon
after. Knives were seized during their arrest, and the three faced
first-degree robbery charges.
