COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Three people are in custody after a business on the Springs' northeast side was held up late Sunday night.

According to the clerk, one of the crooks walked into the store just before 11:30 p.m., pointed a gun and demanded money. As the robbery unfolded, a second suspect reportedly entered the store and milled around as though nothing was happening. The pair left together with unknown amount of cash but were later located several miles away. Police told 11 News they took three people into the custody for the robbery but haven't clarified how the third person was involved.

The robbery was reported at a store on Barnes Road near Austin Bluffs Parkway. The name of the business has not been released.

Detectives are now investigating if this robbery is connected to any other recent robberies.
