At approximately 1:40 am, the Osceola Police Department responded to a call of a robbery at the Shell gas station (4610 West Keiser St) located along I-55 in Osceola. Multiple OPD officers arrived and took one subject into custody, as another subject attempted to enter a vehicle in the parking lot that did not belong to him.
