An Abilene man was arrested Sunday night for allegedly robbing a convenience store clerk at gunpoint.

According to police, 26-year-old Randy Smith pulled a gun on a BZ Mart convenience store clerk just before 10:30 p.m. Sunday in the 1200 block of Grape Street. 

Smith allegedly told the clerk to open the cash register or else he'd shoot. 

Officers found Smith a couple of blocks away from the store and said he matched the suspect's description. They said he also had a large amount of cash on him.

As of Monday, Smith remains in the Taylor County Jail on $20,000 bond.
