San Luis Obispo police say they arrested a suspected robber, nearly an hour after a heist.
Officers say a man walked into the Shell gas station in the 200 block of Santa Rosa Street just before 8 p.m. Tuesday. They say he pulled out a knife and told the clerk to open the cash register. He then ran off with some money.
Then, just after 9 p.m., a Cal Poly police officer spotted a man fitting the suspect description walking at the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Broad Street.
Officers found what they think was the money from the robbery and a knife in the man's pockets. The gas station clerk later identified the man, 47-year-old Manuel Garza, as the robber. Garza was booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail.
