An early morning robbery of an Evansville gas station ended shortly after it began, with the two suspects in custody.

Rhea County Sheriff Mike Neal says that the clerks stepped into a back room and noticed a man, with his face covered, attempting to get into a drawer.

The clerk confronted the suspect, who ran out of the store and jumped into an awaiting vehicle.

Deputies reviewed security video and were able to get a detailed description of the vehicle and took suspects John F. Costa and Andrew Gene Costa into custody a short time later.

Both have been charged with aggravated robbery and are currently being held in the Rhea County jail, with no bond.
