Police suspect armed robbery that netted $45K at Hopkins grocery store was an inside job

The armed robbers who hit a Hopkins grocery last month and fled with tens of thousands of dollars from the safe had help from an employee who was working at the time, according to police.

The revelations of a suspected inside job came in a search warrant affidavit filed this week in Hennepin County District Court and confirmed Tuesday by Police Chief Brent Johnson to the Star Tribune as a "corroborated and correct" version of what went down late at night on Feb. 15.

So far, the suspected robbers, Darius C. Elam, 29, of St. Paul, and Ryan M. Elam, 28, of Brooklyn Center, have been arrested and charged with holding up the US Grocery and Tobacco in the 500 block of N. Blake Road.
