MARICOPA - A man who robbed a Circle K store back in May was arrested on Friday after an alert employee recognized him when he re-entered the same store.
Maricopa Police spokesman Ricardo Alvarado said the employee immediately called 911 upon seeing Yoan Luna, 20, enter the store on John Wayne Parkway.
Luna was arrested for unrelated failure to appear warrants, however he was already an investigative lead in the May 20 robbery, according to police.
Luna admitted to the robbery during questioning with detectives, providing detailed information and stating he was under the influence of meth at the time.
He was booked into the Pinal County Sheriff's Detention Center.
