After the clerk turned over an undisclosed amount of cash, O’Neal fled the store. The incident happened early Wednesday morning. The 33 year old was arrested less than a mile from the store.

Police recovered the stolen cash and a knife from O’Neal, the knife according to the police matches the description the clerk gave. Redmond is being held on a 500 k bond, he is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday. O’Neal has strugged with drug addiction for most of his life.
