A man walked into a Rite Aid in North Syracuse on Tuesday evening and grabbed a drink.
Then, he walked up to a cashier, hinting he had a weapon and demanded money, troopers said. After the cashier gave the man money from a register, the robber left the 114 N. Main St. store, troopers said.
William R. Green, 39, of 116 Church St., North Syracuse, was arrested Tuesday night by the New York State Police and charged with felony third-degree robbery. He was arrested at his home less than 800 feet from the store he robbed, troopers said.
"Due to the quick response of all officers in this multi-agency effort, the suspect was apprehended quickly and a portion of the proceeds were recovered," troopers said.
Green is being held in the Onondaga County Justice Center without bail on a bench warrant. For the robbery charge, his bail was set at $15,000.
