April 15th, 2014 - At approximately 3:50 am, Dane County Sheriff’s deputies responded to an Armed Robbery at 5901 US Highway 51 in the town of Burke. Two clerks were working at the TA Travel Center when a gloved and masked man approached them displaying a handgun and demanding money. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash to a pick-up truck waiting outside with a second male in the driver seat. Just before 8:00 am, a resident of the town of Windsor reported their pick-up stolen. Detectives believe this was the same vehicle used in the armed robbery. The stolen vehicle was recovered and returned to its owner. Detectives are continuing to investigate and ask anyone with information related to the crime to call the Dane County tip line at (608) 284-6900.
