Hopkinsville Police let little time slip by before taking a suspect into custody in connection to an armed robbery at the Dollar General on North Main Street in Hopkinsville Friday afternoon.
Hopkinsville Police Captain Mike Seis says officers were able to track down the suspected robber shortly after the call came out and a description relayed.
Captain Seis says two hundred dollars stolen from the store was recovered with the suspect. Reports say the suspect was taken into custody near Rogers Group on North Main but was not in possession of the weapon or wearing some of the clothing in the description. A short while after the store clerk positively identified the suspect in custody as the person who robbed the store, clothing and a fake gun. Initial reports are that the suspect was wanted on warrants in Christian and Trigg counties.
