MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — A man accused of robbing a gas station in Mitchell, South Dakota, earlier this month has been arrested in Davenport, Iowa.

Police last week issued an arrest warrant for 18-year-old Montez McClain after viewing surveillance camera video and investigating other leads.

The Daily Republic reports McClain was apprehended Wednesday. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Police say a man walked into the Easy Come Easy Go store on April 12, threatened the clerk and fled with about $800 in cash. He did not display a weapon.

McClain was wanted for second-degree robbery, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
