Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after an armed robbery at a convenience store.

According to police, it happened Jan. 13, at a convenience store located at 4309 Crittenden Drive. That's when police say 30-year-old Charles E. Willoghby walked into the store with a knife, demanding money from the cashier.

The cashier handed over the business cash along with lottery tickets and the suspect ran from the store, police say.

The following day, Willoghby was arrested as he allegedly tried to redeem some of the stolen tickets at another store. Police say he was wearing the same clothes he had on when the Shell station was robbed.

Willoghby's fingerprints matched fingerprints found on the stolen tickets police say.

During a search of Willoghby's vehicle, police allegedly found four packages containing a substance believed to Spice, an illegal form of synthetic marijuana.

Willoghby is charged with first degree robbery and possession of synthetic drugs.
