Aurora, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- St. Louis County Sheriff's deputies thwarted a possible robbery attempt at a Holiday Gas Station in Aurora.

During questioning, the suspect allegedly told authorities about a robbery plot. That man was taken into custody for violation of probation.

Two others were taken in for questioning in connection with the robbery plot.
