Clovis woman, 45, held in store robbery

A 45-year-old Clovis woman was arrested Sunday on suspicion of robbing a Clovis cigarette shop on Friday, police said.

Clovis police said the woman walked into the Cigarette Store at 40 W. Shaw Ave. about 9 a.m. Friday, pulled out a semi-automatic handgun and demanded cash. She fled in a dark gray, four-door sedan, but the clerk was able to note part of the license plate.

Police said they were able to track down the car to a home in Clovis, where they found the woman living with her parents. Officers arrested the woman and recovered a handgun, bright yellow shirt, hat and sunglasses that were depicted in the store's surveillance video.
