A Burnett County judge set bail at $25,000 cash for the man who allegedly robbed a Siren Gas Station last week.

Tony Lee Soderquist, 25, appeared in court Tuesday.

According to Siren Police Chief Chris Sybers, Soderquist was arrested Friday, the same day he allegedly robbed the south Holiday Gas Station on Highway 35 with a handgun.

Soderquist allegedly got cash and fled. No one was injured.

Sybers said they received 15 tip calls Friday after they released surveillance photos of the robbery. Thirteen of those calls named Soderquist as the suspect, said Sybers.

Soderquist was located outside of town during a traffic stop Friday. Sybers said a search warrant produced the handgun Soderquist allegedly used.

Soderquist will next appear in Burnett County court on July 9 at 2:00 p.m.
