Authorities say at approximately 10:30 a.m. Monday, the suspect, 27-year-old Aaron Holmes, was spotted by a police officer near Big Cabin in Craig County.

Local officers then contacted OHP investigators. Holmes was then interviewed and taken into custody on complaints of armed robbery, felony assault and battery and other crimes, stemming from the robbery.

Just after midnight Monday, Holmes came into the EZ-GO gas station and robbed the clerk, according to Lt. George Brown with the OHP.
