Zanesville police say they have one man in custody after an early morning robbery.

It happened at the Starfire Gas Station at the corner of Pershing and Pine around 4:00 a.m. Tuesday.

According to Detective Sgt. Ric Roush, a 26-year-old white male with a bandana over his face entered the store and demanded money from the clerk.

The suspect made it seem as though he was armed.

Roush says he fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money.

A short time later the suspect was spotted on Luck Avenue where he was taken into custody.

The suspect is currently in the Zanesville City Jail.

His name isn’t being released until charges are filed.
