Ex-wife's tip leads police to robbery suspect

BUFFALO, Minn. – Authorities say a tip from an ex-wife pointed them to a Sartell man suspected in a string of armed robberies along Interstate 94 from the St. Cloud area to the Minneapolis suburbs.

Police on Wednesday released a security video after a masked man robbed a Burger King in Maple Grove. The ex-wife of Douglas Wayne Gravelle Jr., 34, saw the video on the news and told police he wore the same clothes at a child support hearing, according to charges filed Friday.

Gravelle was being held in the Wright County Jail on charges of aggravated robbery and kidnapping. His bail was set at $500,000. His next court appearance is Tuesday.
