A Decatur man is in jail for an overnight robbery at a convenience store earlier in the week.

Steven Parmer, 19, was arrested for first-degree robbery early Wednesday morning.

Parmer is accused of walking into the Payless Gas and Food on 6th Avenue around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday and robbing a store employee at gunpoint.

Police said they looked at surveillance video of the suspect, took a picture and passed it around to officers. A patrol officer found Parmer at a Mapco Express on 6th Avenue about an hour and a half after the robbery.

Parmer is in the Morgan County Jail on $10,000 bond.
