St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The first armed robbery in Minnesota State Fair history took place Friday evening.

Armed men got away with stealing $10,000 plus in cash at the craft beer exhibit.

The fair’s communications spokesperson says they were confident that public and vendor safety was never a concern.

Robberies have taken place in the past, but never armed robberies.

The incident continues to be under investigation, and no arrests have yet been made.

The fair wrapped up on Labor Day.
