A local man is in custody after an armed robbery at Kangaroo #438, located on 1007 Spring Lane, shortly after 4 a.m. Tuesday.

Austin Lee Prillaman, 21, of the 900 block of Evans Drive, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon after police located the suspect driving a vehicle within city limits shortly after the robbery, according to a Sanford Police Department press release.

A Kangaroo employee said a white man entered the store, displayed a handgun and demanded money from the register. The employee complied, and the suspect left the store on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, according to the release. 

Prillaman was arrested without incident at 7:15 a.m. after a vehicle stop. He was held at the Lee County Jail under a $30,000 secured bond.
