According to Warsaw police, they responded to a call Saturday around 4:45 p.m. about a robbery in progress. Police arrived to Freedom Express gas station, 425 S. Argonne Road, in Warsaw. The station attendant said a white male entered the store and told the attendant that he had a gun and demanded all the money in the register, but then left the business walking Southbound.
The suspect was described as wearing a green hooded sweatshirt and a camouflage baseball cap. Officers were checking the area when the attendant called back and advised that the suspect had returned and was in the lot in a red pick-up truck.
Warsaw Officers arrived on the scene and took the suspect into custody. The suspect is identified as Joseph J. Bradley, 53, of Claypool, IN. Bradley told officers he was only joking and did not have a gun. After interviewing Bradley, it was determined that he did intend to rob the gas station but when he did he felt bad about it and left, but then returned to apologize to the attendant. Bradley was transported to the Kosciusko County Jail and booked in for Attempted Robbery, a class C felony.
