TUCSON (KVOA) -- A suspect who robbed a Circle K and threatened two store clerks with a screwdriver has been arrested.

According to the City of South Tucson Police, a crime tip led officers to 19-year-old Tony David Moreno who was taken into custody just after midnight Thursday, May 18.

Moreno is accused of robbing the Circle K Store located at 2004 South 6th Avenue on Wednesday.

Police say Moreno entered the store and walked behind the counter pointing a screwdriver at both clerks. He then ordered the first clerk to give him money from the cash register.

Moreno then told the second clerk, "you have 10 seconds to open your register" as he pointed the screwdriver within inches of her body.

He then fled on foot with $77.

Police immediately released photos of Moreno captured from store surveillance cameras. They did not say where Moreno was arrested, but confirmed in a press release that a crime tip led to the arrest of the 19-year-old. 

Moreno has been booked into the Pima County Jail on charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault and burglary.
