Jasper County Sheriff Mitchel Newman said late Saturday evening a suspect had been arrested in connection with the Thursday morning armed robbery of a convenience store in Buna.

Newman said the suspect, Bryan Shoulders, 34, of Call was arrested by authorities in Diboll.

Chief Deputy Scotty Duncan said Friday that information obtained in the investigation had identified Shoulders as the prime suspect in the case and that a warrant had been issued calling for the arrest of the man.

Officers believe Shoulders is the man who entered the Sunshine Convenience Store on Highway 96 in Buna shortly before 10:00 and brandished a gun while ordering the clerk to hand over cash.
