(Republic-Times) -- Monroe County Sheriff's Department deputies quickly caught up to a vehicle attempting to flee from a suspected armed robbery that is believed to have occurred south of Hecker tonight around 8 p.m.

Police radio dispatch transmissions indicated that two parties had agreed to meet at a location on or near Powell Road in rural Red Bud for the agreed upon sale of car speakers that may have initiated on Craigslist.

When the two male parties met, the suspected seller of the speakers apparently brandished a gun, took $210 from the buyer without exchanging the speakers, and drove away heading north on Route 159 toward Hecker.
