A 16-year-old sophomore at Bryant High School has been arrested in the armed robbery of a RadioShack last week.
The Bryant Police Department says the teen was arrested Monday in the March 5 robbery of the store at 307 Bryant Ave.
Sgt. Todd Crowson said the student was arrested without incident at school and later confessed.
"I think he told the investigators he just needed some money," Crowson said.
The suspect's name was not released because he is a minor, though Crowson said it's possible he will be tried as an adult and his information will be made public. He will face charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property.
It wasn't clear how the teen became a suspect. The police department said investigators and school resource officers worked together on the case.
The store was held up about 7:30 p.m. by a robber wearing a hoodie and camouflage mask and armed with a gun. He left after getting an undisclosed amount of cash from the register.
