Bryant police have arrested a 16-year-old Bryant High School student in connection with the robbery of RadioShack in Bryant last week.
The suspect's name has not been released, but this will change if he is tried as an adult, which is possibility, said Sgt. Todd Crowson of the Bryant Police Department. The teen faces charges of aggravated robbery and theft of property.
It was reported that the store had been robbed at gunpoint. However, the weapon was a pellet gun, not a fire arm, Crowson said.
The suspect reportedly made off with an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register.
Crowson said that, when asked why he committed the crime, "he just said he needed the money."
Bryant school resource officers aided in the arrest, which occurred without incident. The teen reportedly confessed to police.
