SUMTER, SC (WIS) -

Sumter Police say multiple tips from the public and also from the law enforcement community have led to the arrest of a man who reportedly held up a convenience store Tuesday night.

Timothy Odell Head, 57, was arrested by officers at a motel on US Highway 15. He faces multiple charges including armed robbery. 

The robbery happened at the Sunoco Store located at 1083 Broad Street.

Investigators say Head initially brought items to the counter for purchase and after asking for cigarettes, pulled out a gun and demanded money. He then fled from the location with an undetermined amount of cash along with other items.

Head is not from Sumter and is being held at the Sumter-Lee Regional Detention Center.
