Alleged Pipestone robbery still under investigation

PIPESTONE -- Physical evidence at the scene of an alleged armed robbery is pointing in a different direction than the complainant may have intended.

According to a release from Pipestone County Sheriff Dan Delaney, an armed robbery was reported to his office at 11:20 a.m. Saturday from the Super 8 Motel on Eighth Avenue in Pipestone. The robbery was reported by an employee of the motel.

But the evidence at the scene was inconsistent with the reporting party's statement, the sheriff stated, and that person was not cooperating with law enforcement at the time the sheriff's information was released.

An undisclosed amount of money was missing from the cash drawer of the motel, and the incident remains under investigation.
