(Spencer, IA) -- A Florida man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery Tuesday evening of a Spencer convenience store. Spencer police say they were called to the Dynos Convenience Store.

A clerk told officers he had been robbed by a man who fled in a white sedan. Clay county deputies spotted the suspect vehicle a short time later and stopped it in the Verizon parking lot. The driver was identified as 22-year-old Jaime Saline Munoz of Shalimar, Florida, who was taken into custody.

Upon investigating officers learned Munoz had attempted to purchase a can of beer while he was in the store and that while he was speaking with the clerk, Munoz allegedly displayed a firearm tucked in his waistband and demanded money.

Munoz then fled with the cash, which officers recovered along with a CO2 BB gun that was allegedly used in the robbery.

Munoz was charged with robbery in the 1st degree and was booked into the Clay county jail on a $25,000 bond.
