WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) - A suspect is in custody in the armed robbery of a Wahpeton gas station.

Police in Moorhead, Minnesota, on Thursday night arrested a 31-year-old man who they say confessed to robbing the Tesoro station in Wahpeton early that day. Investigators say the man gave them a detailed account of the robbery in which a man with a pistol demanded money from the cash register and fled with between $200 and $250 in cash.

The man was arrested at a Moorhead motel on an armed robbery charge. Authorities say they also recovered evidence tying the man to the robbery.
