That dramatic SWAT team operation in South Fargo this afternoon didn't net police two men they are looking for. The Fargo men are suspects in an armed robbery Wednesday at Stop-N-Go on 23rd Street. Federal and local authorities collected evidence from the scene believed to be related to that robbery, but what they didn't find, the suspects.

Police have issued arrest warrants for these men: 19 year old Mason Peet and 40 year old Steven Gibson. Peet is 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. Gibson is 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

In dramatic fashion the Red River Regional SWAT Team threw flash bombs as they executed a search warrant at 1423 6th avenue south, apartment 2. They had information the pair may be inside. Authorities detained three people for questioning but released them hours later. Police aren't saying if those detained are related to the suspects or what information they gave. They say the suspects may have been tipped off before the raid and left town.

Keith Ternes – Fargo Police Chief: “I feel very confident that the investigation to this point is taking us in the right direction. I think we're all a little disappointed that the two suspects that we were looking for were not at the south Fargo apartment.”

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Pete or Gibson, or info on anyone involved in the other recent robberies, you can call the Fargo police tip line at (701)-241-5777 or you can text a tip to the Fargo Police by texting (701)-730-8888.

Police aren't sure if the suspects are connected to any of the other four robberies, besides that Stop-N-Go. They have no immediate plans for another search warrant tonight.
