Wisconsin men arrested for Muscatine robbery

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.
