Police say a man who robbed a Speedway gas station used a semi-truck as his getaway vehicle.

The 50-year old Southfield man has been arrested. Ingham County Sheriff's investigators say he walked into the gas station on Eaton Rapids Road in Lansing just before 10 Wednesday night.

They say he indicated to the clerk he had a gun and stole the cash box from the register.

Deputies caught up with the suspect on I-96 near Webberville. He's expected to be formally charged Friday.
