Just hours after asking the public for help in finding the suspect in an armed robbery of an Old Town tobacco shop, Cottonwood police announced a 19-year-old Clarkdale man has been arrested in the case.
The suspect reportedly entered the store in the 900 block of North Main Street in Old Town, and demanded items from a display. Upon receiving the items, he brandished a knife, threatened a clerk, then fled into a nearby neighborhood on foot.
Police allege the he took several bags of Spice and a metal pipe from the store.
Spice is a mixture of chemicals and herbs that can induce a marijuana-like high in those who smoke it. Spice may be legally sold in Arizona.
