A juvenile suspect was arrested Thursday afternoon in connection with the armed robbery of a mini mart near the 700 block of West Inyo Avenue in Tulare, Tulare Police Sgt. Andy Garcia said.
The boy was arrested on charges of robbery and terrorist threats, Garcia said. Officers stopped him after receiving a call about a boy riding a bike with a handgun. The suspect had a concealed pellet gun and an undisclosed amount of money, Garcia said. The boy was later found to match the mini mart clerk’s description of the robber.
