Two Wisconsin men have been accused of robbing a Muscatine food mart while armed with pellet guns.

According to the Muscatine County Attorney, two men in their twenties reportedly robbed the GM Food Market in Muscatine, Iowa on Tuesday evening, January 7, 2014.

Officials say 23-year-old Scott Fry and 22-year-old Ashton Dix walked into the store with pellet guns and demanded cash from the store just off Highway 61. After leaving the store, deputies were chasing them up Highway 61 until the alleged robbers crashed west of the 280 interchange in Scott County.

The two were reportedly facing charges of first degree robbery and were held in the Muscatine County Jail. They were held on half-million dollars bond.

    I work at that store. I wasn’t there when It happened though but my boss was the one that got held up. They stole his wallet as well as the money out of the drawer, he is safe though but pretty shook up still from all that happened.

    it appears they were having a few bad days. I bet they do feel bad…because they got caught. I wonder how they got to Muscatine, IA from Janesville, WI? I hear the car they totaled wasn’t theirs.

    I am shocked to learn my brothers have done this… I am truely sorry they have went to this type of extend to get money.. my brothers have had a rough life.. they may have made a huge mistake but they are harmless human beings… and I know deep down they’d never intentionally mean to harm another individual… my heart goes out to everone that was involved including tha boss and them.

    Hard life? That is exactly what will be waiting for them in prison if they plead guilty or go to trial and are found guilty. The max time for a robbery is 25 yrs and for the theft of a vehicle is 5. Hard life or not, it was a choice THEY made.
