Armed Robbery Suspect Caught On Camera, Turns Self In

Wausau police say they posted surveillance video of an attempted armed robber online -- and two hours later one of the suspects walked into police headquarters and turned himself in.

The video shows two men entering a convenience store, showing a gun and demanding money before the clerk pushed them outside and locked the door. That video was released at 5:00 P-M and it wasn't long until 20-year-old Devonte Scoles showed up. Three hours after that, 31-year-old suspect Joshua Pregont was arrested while riding in a car.
