(NNCNOW.com)-- An investigation has authorities believing a 16-year-old juvenile participated in both the armed robbery at JT's One Stop Shop in Solon Springs, and the attempted robbery at the Triple G's gas station in Cable, Wisconsin.

The boy was taken into custody after a standoff with the Sawyer County Sheriff Department's SWAT team.

Criminal complaints filed against Alyssa Littlewind and Sarah Melton, accusing them of contributing to the armed robbery in Solon Springs says the juvenile admits to robbing the gas station, and splitting the money with them.

The complaint goes on to say the boy wanted to use the money for drugs and attempted to hide the firearm after the robberies.

Littlewind and Melton were charged in Douglas County court Wednesday.
