TROY, AL (WSFA) -

The Troy Police Department arrested 20-year-old Rashaun Devante Thomas on Friday in connection to a robbery that occurred on Tuesday. 

Thomas was arrested on Friday at 9:50 a.m. and charged with first degree robbery.

Investigators spotted the stolen vehicle within ten minutes and attempted a traffic stop. Thomas is said to have fled and a pursuit was started.
