Deputies arrested a young girl Friday afternoon in connection to the armed robbery at Casey’s in Higbee.

Randolph County Mark Nichols confirmed Dakota Carr, 21, is currently being held in the Randolph County Jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.

Carr was not inside the store at the time of the robbery, Nichols said. She is facing possible charges of robbery in the first degree, armed criminal action and unlawful use of a weapon.

Brian Nicholas Koch, 17, of Moberly was formally charged in the robbery Thursday. Koch is charged with the Class A Felony of Robbery, the Class D Felony of Unlawful Use of a Weapon and Felony Armed Criminal Action.

His bond is set at $50,000. Koch remains in custody at the Randolph County Justice Center.

It happened at the Casey’s Convenience store in Higbee.

Koch allegedly showed a silver pistol during the robbery and demanded money. Deputies said he got away with an undisclosed amount of money and goods.

There were no reports of any injuries.

On Monday, authorities released a photo of the suspect taken from surveillance video footage.

On Wednesday the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office got a tip about who the subject was who committed the robbery. The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office and members of the Moberly Police Department located and arrested Koch in Moberly around 11:00 Wednesday morning.

Authorities originally said the suspect was an 18-year-old white male who lives in Moberly. They said officers located the weapon used in the crime and took it as evidence.
