A search continues for three suspects in the robbery of the Ricker’s gas station in southern Columbus yesterday.

Lt. Matt Harris with the Columbus police says that two men were questioned by Indiana State Police yesterday but they were not taken into custody and have not been arrested. He said detectives are out still working to gather evidence and information in the case.

Police say three masked men entered the store, displayed a gun and stole cash before fleeing in a stolen Hummer. After a 100 mph chase up the interstate, the men crashed the vehicle and then ran away in Greenwood.

Police also suspect the men robbed a Seymour motel that night.

They are described as:

  • A white man who was about six feet tall and wore a black hooded sweatshirt or jacket with a black face mask
  • A man who was 5-7 to 5-9 who wore a dark blue hooded sweatshirt, with khaki pants, white tennis shoes and a red knit hat and who may have had blonde hair.
  • And a man who was 5-5 to 5-7 and was seen wearing all black clothing with a black face mask. There was a design on his dark pants and knit hat with red and white stripes.

If you have any information, you should contact the Columbus Police Department at 812-376-2600. All suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.
