Why rob a gas station? Everyone pays with plastic.

Armed robbery at 2 pm on a Saturday afternoon? That gas station is in a highly populated/congested area on Washtenaw across from Arborland. Very bad news that criminals are committing dangerous crimes in broad daylight when so many people are out shopping and driving in that area.

Don't mean to laugh but the Sheriff's Department and County Jail is right behind the gas station.

Don't laugh too hard. That's the Mobil station. The BP in question is the one next to the south US23 on ramp.

Heck, just going to the gas station anymore is "un-armed" robbery. I can't believe how much the price jumped overnight. I'm hoping no one was injured.

true but few as easy as that one. When you turn right out of that one you are literally on the south bound ramp to US 23. You have to be careful NOT to get on the freeway from that one. There isn't another one in town like it that I can think of.
