BRADENTON, Fla. (WWSB) - An arrest was made in connection with the armed robbery of a Circle K in Bradenton last week.

Officials say a man walked into the Circle K at 904 30th Ave. E., Dec. 16 and produced what appeared to be a single-shot sawed-off shotgun and demanded money. The unknown suspect took the cash and fled the area on a beach cruiser style bicycle, west bound on 30th Avenue East. Detectives believed that the incident was connected to a similar robbery at another Circle K in September. The MO was similar and the suspect fled the scene on a similar bicycle.

Through investigation, officials say they determined that William L. Prince was behind the incident. He was arrested Wednesday and has been charged with Armed Robbery.
