Police arrested a gunman accused of robbing a convenience store late Tuesday, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

A clerk at the Circle K on 1644 Nicholson Drive handed Kendrick Cosey the cash in the registers, the affidavit says. Cosey then drove off in a gold Nissan Maxima, which officers later found Cosey still driving that night, the affidavit says. Cosey left the car and ran away, but officers caught him shortly thereafter, the affidavit says.

Cosey admitted to robbing the store when questioned by police, the affidavit says.

Cosey, 32, 306 Plymouth St., Denham Springs, was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of armed robbery.
