Man being sought in alleged attempted armed robbery at Iuka storage facility

IUKA, IL — Iuka police are investigating a possible armed robbery Tuesday night at a storage facility on Front Street.

According to reports, a victim contacted the Marion County Sheriff’s Department telling them that he was removing items from his storage unit around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday when a vehicle with a female driver and male passenger stopped and the male passenger began running toward him. The victim said that as he climbed into his own vehicle he saw the other man pull out a gun.

The victim said the other man got back into the passenger side of the other car and that vehicle chased his for a short distance before it stopped. The victim later notified police of where the suspect vehicle was located. Officers did question the female driver but she was ultimately released without charge.

The male passenger had already left the area before police arrived. He’s still being sought.
