Marion Man Helps Police Catch Robber
MARION (Adam Aaro) -- A Marion man is being credited with helping police catch an armed robbery suspect.
Karl Tolley says he went inside the Duke and Duchess station at 1360 Delaware Avenue to pay for gas Tuesday night. But when opened the door, a person he thought was a customer, 21-year-old Garrett Campbell, turned around and pointed a gun at him and told him to leave the store. Police say Campbell was in the process of robbing the store.
Tolley then retreated out of the store, but decided to track Campbell in his car.
"I guess it was just, it was a little personal, you know?" Tolley said. "You have a gun stuck in your face, it's a little personal."
For nearly 10 minutes, Tolley tailed Campbell's car, all the while updating emergency dispatchers about their location.
"I just hoped he didn't turn around and realize it was me," Tolley said.
Police eventually found Campbell and arrested him.
"It was nice to see a good ending," Tolley said. "Nobody got hurt."
Still, Tolley said the whole thing left him with one burning question.
"Why would someone 21-years-old ruin their life?" Tolley said. "I don't understand."
Campbell was booked into jail on robbery charges. There's no word yet on his next court date.
