Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested In Storage Area


Springfield police have arrested a suspect in an armed robbery that happened early Saturday morning in a downtown Springfield bar. 

 

Employees of the Elixir bar told police that a man entered the bar just before 1am and sat and drank beer until closing time at 3am.  During that time, he told workers that his name was Giovanni, and that he was involved with the Mob.  As employees prepared to close down, one of them prepared a bank deposit bag... and that’s when the suspect pulled out a gun, held it to a customer’s head and demanded the cash.  He got away with around $2,000. 

 

But police say they developed leads that their suspect was living in a storage facility on North 2nd Street.  After executing a search warrant, police took 51-year-old Steven Jugan into custody. He’s facing multiple charges, including Armed Robbery and Aggravated Assault.
