CLEARFIELD -- He needed the money to buy an Xbox, so he decided to rob a gas station.
That is what Dustin Jack Ferguson told police after they arrested him for robbing the Chevron Station convenience store at 1716 S. Main St.
After receiving a tip, police tracked down Ferguson, 18, in his Layton home Saturday and booked him into Davis County Jail. Ferguson is being charged with second-degree felony robbery.
"We've been holding back on releasing anything about the arrest, because we were looking for the driver," Assistant Chief Mike Stenquist said.
Police recovered evidence that ties Ferguson to the robbery. However, Stenquist said, police are not releasing information about the evidence.
According to a news release on the incident, the male clerk told police that a single male suspect had entered the convenience store, threatened that he had a gun and demanded money from the till.
Stenquist said Ferguson was cooperative with investigators until they started asking him about his accomplice in the robbery. Then, Stenquist said, Ferguson would not talk.
Stenquist said investigators assume, from the little information they received from Ferguson, the driver was a male. Police believe the vehicle used during the robbery was a white, 1990s Geo Prism or Chevy Cavalier-type vehicle. The car was parked in a nearby parking lot next to Antelope Elementary School while Ferguson was in the gas station.
Anyone with information on the driver's identity is asked to call Clearfield police at 801-525-2806.
