Deputies say knife used in attempted hold-up of Casey’s in Tonica

Posted by wlpo on August 7, 2014

A knife was the weapon of choice in an attempted hold up at the Casey’s General Store in Tonica.

La Salle County deputies say a 15-year-old went into the Casey’s Tuesday night and demanded money from a clerk while showing a knife. The clerk called 9-1-1 instead and the boy from Tonica was arrested minutes later.

He was taken to the La Salle County Detention Home. Because of his age, the teen’s name hasn’t been released.
