Mapleton, ND (WDAY TV) -- We are learning more information about an armed robbery in Mapleton Monday night.

A 17 year-old boy is suspected of robbing Gordy's Travel Plaza in Mapleton around 6. He was arrested along I-94 in Fargo last evening. The clerk at the travel plaza had given police the license plate and color of the car the boy was in.

A Cass County deputy spotted the car at the Sheyenne Street exit before it got back on the highway going east. That's when Sheriff's deputies and the highway patrol caught up with him.

Cass County Sheriff Steve Gabrielson: "We did notice a backpack in the back seat. In it we did find a long gun fire arm that was laying in the backseat that was recovered and it has been identified as the weapon that he used at Mapleton."

Because the suspect is under 18, his name is not being released.
