ARLINGTON, Wash. — Two teenage boys were arrested in a robbery at an Arlington ampm store late Saturday night.

Four men entered the store about 11:20 p.m. Two of them threatened the clerk with a handgun and then ran out of the store, Arlington police said.

Officers, troopers and deputies from Arlington, Marysville, Stillaguamish, the Washington State Patrol and Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office flooded the area, and all four suspects were taken into custody.

Arlington police said the handgun used during the robbery turned out to be a BB gun.

Two boys, ages 15 -and 16-years-old, were booked into the Denney Juvenile Justice Center for investigation of first-degree robbery.

The other two people were released after investigators discovered they had just met the two suspects and weren’t directly involved in the robbery.
