UPDATE: New details released in College Station c-store robbery

The arrest came less than two hours after the robbery happened, police said.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — UPDATE:

New details have been released in the robbery of a College Station convenience store.

Daniel Bradshaw, 30, is charged with robbery in the case.  Police said he robbed the Texas Food Mart Exxon station on Oct. 17 and took money from the cash register.

The store employee told police he was in the back room of the store cleaning an restocking when a man with something covering his face walked in and pointed a gun at him.  The employee opened the cash register and the suspect took the money and ran from the store, police said.

An officer with the Bryan Police Department called College Station police nearly two hours after the robbery and said they had arrested a man who matched the description of the robbery suspect for an unrelated incident.  That man was identified as Bradshaw, according to court documents.

A Bryan officer said Bradshaw had been arrested for public intoxication after someone called police and said he had shown a small gun.  The gun was later identified as an airsoft replica pistol and it looked like the gun seen being held by the robbery suspect at the Texas Food Mart, police said.  Bradshaw also was found wearing and in possession of the clothing seen on the convenience store's surveillance video, police said.

When officers questioned Bradshaw about the robbery, he was vague about what he was doing around the time of the robbery, police said.
