Authorities say a man arrested in connection with an early morning armed robbery in Coshocton has also admitted to another robbery from last month.

In a press release, Coshocton County Sheriff Tim Rogers says around 3:00 Friday morning the Circle K Store on South 7th Street was robbed at knife point.

He says the suspect fled the scene in a pick up truck and was caught about 45 minutes later.

The 38-year-old suspect was then taken to the Coshocton County Justice Center and questioned.

Sheriff Rogers says the man admitted to the Circle K Robbery and also gave information connecting him to the Starfire Robbery that happened on May 26th.

The suspect will be charged later Friday with the Starfire robbery and the Circle K robbery will go to the next grand jury.

His name will be released once formal charges are filed.
