MOSCOW, Idaho-- Police arrested two teenagers who allegedly held up a store at gunpoint Saturday.

Security cameras caught a glimpse of two masked suspects at the Stinker Station along West Pullman Road at 3:54 a.m. September 28th.

As a result of information gathered from tips and additional interviews, detectives said their investigation led them to two suspects Wednesday.  Police arrested a 17-year-old male from Genesee and Bailey Westgate, 18, of Moscow.

The 17-year-old suspect was placed in juvenile detention in Lewiston awaiting further court proceedings.  Westgate was arrested by Spokane Police and was awaiting extradition proceedings to be returned to Latah County.

According to investigators, the teens demanded money from the cash register at the Stinker Station. Witnesses said one of the suspects then pointed a gun at two employees. Police also said the suspects forced shoppers to hand over their phones and set them on the counter during the hold up.

A Stinker Station employee told police that the suspects left with a bag of cash and Marlboro cigarettes.  The weapons were described as semi-automatic type pistols, black in color with a silver barrel.
