DCI Agent Sees Apparent Robbery, Stops Suspect
ATLANTIC, Iowa (AP) - A state investigator is being credited with stopping a robbery in western Iowa after noticing the crime unfolding inside a convenience store.
The Department of Public Safety says the incident happened Wednesday night when a man entered a Casey's General Store in Atlantic. He told the clerk he had a weapon and demanded money.
Shelby McCreedy, a Division of Criminal Investigation special agent, was outside and noticed something was happening inside.
McCreedy warned other away, then walked inside, identified herself as an officer and ordered the man to the floor.
The man complied with her instructions until Atlantic police arrived.
Police charged 22-year-old Brady Thomas Salberg with second-degree robbery. He was taken to the Cass County Jail.
Online court records didn't show whether he had an attorney.
