Another day, another robbery..this timeĀ in East Grand Forks. EGF police believe the latest armed robbery at Orton's in East Grand Forks follows a similar pattern to 4 recent robberies in Grand Forks. The robbery happened at 1PM on Friday. The suspect displayed his gun and left with an undetermined amount of cash. Police report no injuries.

A police dog was on the scene and followed a trail behind Ortons. It is possible the suspect left the scene in an older white model car with a loud muffler.
