UPDATE: One man is behind bars after an armed robbery last week. Police say 21-year-old Brandon Jones robbed the Casey’s General Store located at 13th and E last Monday.

They say he had a gun, and was wearing a mask. 

Video surveillance showed Jones was in the store minutes before the robbery and bought some things using a debit card police were able to trace.

"According to the affidavit, the defendant is observed on video to walk around to the back of the building where he changes and disguises his appearance with additional clothing to include mask and gloves and then he reenters the store, brandishing a handgun," LPD Officer Katie Flood said.

No one was injured during the crime.

Jones has been arrested for robbery and use of a weapon to commit a felony.
