MEIRE GROVE, MN (KNSI) - An arrest has been made in a Meire Grove convenience store robbery.

Twenty one year-old Matthew Dehncke of Paynesville was arrested and taken to the Stearns County Jail. Authorities are still looking for a second suspect who may have left the state.

The robbery occurred at the Quality Plus gas station Tuesday afternoon. Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner says investigators took information from witnesses and from video surveillance cameras in the store to identify the suspects.

Investigators are looking for a sweatshirt that one of the robbers was wearing. It's a fluorescent hooded sweatshirt with a construction company logo on the front. It's believed to have been tossed from a vehicle south of Albany.
