Calvin Thomas, 33, accused of robbing the Circle K store in the 6000 block of Magazine Street on Aug. 31, turned himself into New Orleans police Thursday after seeing a TV report saying he was wanted.
Police said Thomas entered the store about 6:40 p.m., walked to the cashier, produced a pistol and demanded cash. The cashier handed him an undetermined amount of cash and cigarettes.
Police said Detective Jerry Baldwin received a Crimestoppers tip connecting Thomas, who they said also uses the alias of Calvin Deal, to the robbery.
Thomas was booked on armed robbery.
