SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — Police have arrested a teenager in connection with an armed robbery at a Sioux Falls convenience store.
Police say the teen walked into the store at about 5 a.m. Wednesday and demanded money from the clerk. Officers reviewing video footage of the robbery recognized the suspect as one of two people who stole beer from another convenience store earlier Wednesday.
Detectives determined the suspect's identity and found him about 9 a.m. at a Sioux Falls restaurant, after he had allegedly stolen a car.
The teen is charged with first degree robbery, grand theft of a motor vehicle, aggravated assault, petty theft and underage consumption.
Police are searching for the second suspect in the beer theft.
