FORT MADISON, Ia. (WGEM) -

The Fort Madison Police Department reported Thursday that two people were arrested in connection with an armed robbery back in January.

The armed robbery happened on Jan. 7 at Garner Oil Station, located at 2236 Ave. L. Police reported during the robbery, an undisclosed amount of cash, cigars and beer was taken.

As a result of the ongoing investigation, police stated Noah Gasaway, 20, of Fort Madison, was arrested on charges of first-degree robbery and two counts of using a juvenile to commit a crime. 

Police Chief Tim Sittig said a juvenile was also arrested in connection with the robbery. He said the juvenile was 17 at the time of his arrest.

"Because this was a forcible crime, he can be charged as an adult," Sittig said. "I believe they'll try to charge him as an adult."

Sittig also explained the charges of using a juvenile to commit a crime against Gasaway.

"An adult should take responsibility and not allow a juvenile to commit a crime," Sittig said.

FMPD reported Gasaway was being held at the Lee County Jail on a $200,000 bond. The juvenile was being held at a juvenile detention center in Lee County, according to Sittig.
