Grand Forks police have arrested a man for allegedly trying to rob a local business.

They say James Hensrud is charged with robbery and reckless endangerment after he attempted to rob J&J Laundromat and Car Wash with his kids in the back seat.

Hensrud allegedly tried to break into a change machine in the car wash, but ran when he was caught by an employee around 7:15 p.m.

There is no word from police on how many of his kids were in the back seat or their condition.

He is also facing multiple drug charges.

Police say that a tip from the public is what led to Hensrud's arrest.
