LIVONIA, Mich. (WXYZ) — Would you recognize your co-worker if this happened to you?

A man barely wearing a disguise is now in custody, accused of holding up his former co-worker at a Speedway Gas Station.

Livonia Police released surveillance video of the crime that happened on Valentine’s Day at the Speedway at Schoolcraft and Merriman in Livonia.

A man walks in to the business, pulls out a gun, points it at the cashier, and demands money.

He takes cash and takes off. His body type is not disguised and only part of his face is hidden.

The clerk working told police it was a man who until only about a week prior worked at that very gas station. Police arrested him the next day.

Now Sean Ragland, 26 of Highland Park, is in jail facing armed robbery charges. His bond is set at $150,000.
