TOWN OF BURKE (WKOW)-- Detectives are investigating an armed robbery at the TA Travel Center, according to the Dane County Sheriff's Department.

It happened at 3:50 AM Tuesday. Deputies responded to an armed robber at 5901 US Highway in the town of Burke. Two clerks were working at the TA Travel Center when a gloved and masked man approached them, displaying a handgun and demanding money, according to the Sheriff's Department. The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, in a pick-up truck waiting outside with a second male in the driver's seat.

Just before 8:00 am, a resident of the town of Windsor reported their pick-up stolen.  Detectives believe this was the same vehicle used in the armed robbery.  The stolen vehicle was recovered and returned to its owner.  Detectives are continuing to investigate and ask anyone with information related to the crime to call the Dane County tip line at (608) 284-6900.
