Brandon police say they've tracked down the suspect who robbed the 7-Eleven convenience store on 10th Street at gunpoint early Monday morning.

A 17-year-old boy has been arrested after an armed robbery earlier this week, and police say they've recovered the pistol used in the crime.

A suspect clad in hoodie and jeans, wearing a Scream-style Halloween mask, burst into the 7-Eleven store on 10th Street in Brandon early Monday morning, brandishing a pistol. He made off with a small amount of cash.

Police say they were able to track the suspect down on Wednesday evening, and arrest him without incident at his Brandon home.

After his arrest, officers searched the home, and say they recovered evidence related to the robbery, including the pistol.

After consultations with prosecutors, police released the teen from custody on a number of conditions. He's to appear in court on June 24, where he'll face a charge of armed robbery and of wearing a disguise.

They say they continue to investigate, but thank the Brandon community for their help in solving the crime.
