It happened around 10:15 Tuesday night at the Stop and Buy on Highway 36.
A man demanded money from a cashier at gunpoint. After getting an undisclosed amount, the man fled.
When police arrived they saw a man fitting the description of the robbery suspect.
Officers stopped him but soon realized that he was not the suspect from the Stop and Buy, but he did have a warrant out for his arrest. Cedric Figgs was arrested for possession.
Police are still looking for the robbery suspect, though. He is described as a black man between 5'10 and 6'1, thin build, last wearing a grey jacket, black gloves, with a chrome handgun.
