In that incident, a man with a handgun demanded money and locked two workers in the cooler before leaving in a Dodge Durango.

Authorities believe the man also is responsible for five robberies in the past month along I-94. Two others involved Burger Kings, in Clearwater and Monticello, and happened hours apart on Sept. 19. The other robberies were in Big Lake, St. Cloud and another in Monticello.
