UPDATE: Armed Robbery Suspect Nabbed
A Cheyenne teen has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at the Family Dollar on East Lincolnway Thursday afternoon.
Cheyenne Police arrested a 14-year-old male around 11:30 a.m. this morning.
The teen was booked into the Laramie County Juvenile Services Center on an aggravated robbery charge.
The case remains under investigation by the Cheyenne Police Department.
Officer Dan Long says a white man wearing a blue t-shirt entered the store around 1:15 p.m., left and then came back around 1:45 p.m. wearing a blue hoodie and bandanna around his face.
"He brandished a pistol and demanded money from the clerk," said Long. "He did get some money and then left the area in a dark-colored, Dodge four-door car."
Police were unable to get a plate number off of the car, but have released surveillance images of the robber.
Anyone who recognizes the man or knows his whereabouts is asked to call the Cheyenne Police Department at (307) 637-6510 or Silent Witness at (307) 638-TIPS.
