WICHITA, Kansas — An observant Wichita Police Department officer apprehended two thieves early Friday morning.

Around 2:50 a.m. Friday, two men entered a Phillips 66 station at 248 S. Hillside where they showed a handgun and demanded cash and cigarettes.

A police officer who knew of that robbery decided to watch another gas station in the 2800 block of West Central where he eventually observed two men who appeared to be carrying handguns enter the store. The officer called into dispatch and followed the two men into a neighborhood when they left the store.

The men were arrested and booked for robbery at both locations.
