     The armed robbery is being investigated as a drug-related home invasion. During the commission of the crime one masked invader pistol whipped the 21-year-old victim.

     A witness was able to provide MPD with solid information on the suspects' getaway car. This information was shared with our area law enforcement partners.

     Shortly thereafter, Middleton Police officers observed the car enter a parking lot of an Allen Blvd. apartment complex. Middleton officers were ultimately able to detain four suspects believed to have been involved in the E. Johnson St. armed robbery. An associate of the suspects, a man who lives in an Allen Blvd. apartment, was also arrested.

     Seized by Middleton and Madison Police were drugs (marijuana and MDMA), cash, drug paraphernalia, ski masks, a real handgun, and a look-alike handgun.

     The MPD would like to publically thank Middleton Police, as a Madison Police scene sergeant said: "We utilized a lot of police resources, both here and in Middleton ... (the collaboration) was simply magnificent with respect to their assistance on this investigation and we could not have done it without them."
