HILLMAN — A 39-year-old Little Falls man was arrested for an armed robbery at The Cave Bar & Grill in Hillman.

On Tuesday, May 31, the Morrison County Sheriff’s Office received a report of an armed robbery at approximately 12:18 a.m. at the business, located at the intersection of Highway 27 and 370th Avenue, approximately 4 miles north of Hillman in Richardson Township.

The suspect entered the business wearing a scarf around his neck, holding what appeared to be a black rifle and demanded money from e-tabs and the cash register, the sheriff’s office reported. He then left in a silver Ford truck.

Deputies responded and learned the suspect's vehicle left east on Highway 27 toward Onamia. Mille Lacs County sheriff's deputies located the vehicle and detained the man.

After an initial investigation, the Little Falls man was placed under arrest for the armed robbery. Evidence associated with the robbery was located.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
