Police said they caught a Galesburg man accused of robbing a Moline gas station and fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Michael Eaves, 23, allegedly robbed Gasland at 1305 15th Street just before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, 2013.
Police said the store clerk told them the suspect was armed with a handgun when he went into the store and demanded money. The suspect then ran from the store.
Detectives found Eaves a short time later. Police said they also “recovered a loaded semi-automatic handgun and the cash believed to have been taken in the robbery.”
A spokesman for Moline Police said Eaves was charged with one felony count of armed robbery.
Eaves was held in the Rock Island County Jail in lieu of $300,000 bond.
