Police said a 23-year-old armed robber was able to steal cash from an Arnold corner store at lunchtime on Wednesday, but he was arrested within minutes.

Police said Jared McLain of New Kensington wielded a loaded 9 mm pistol when he robbed the All Seasons Mini Mart at 701 Drey St. near Constitution Boulevard at 12:20 p.m.

Arnold police Sgt. Mike Ondo said Arnold and New Kensington officers rushed to the scene and started searching.

A witness reported a man changing clothes in Proctor Alley. Police said the clothing matched robbery witness accounts, and McLain was arrested.

McLain is charged with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property and possessing a gun without a license.

McLain was arraigned in Westmoreland County Night Court before District Judge Roger Eckels. He is being held in Westmoreland County jail on $50,000 cash bail.
