GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Police say they arrested a teen just minutes after he robbed a gas station convenience store clerk at gunpoint on St. James Avenue early Monday morning.

Goose Creek Police officers responded to the 200 block of St. James Avenue around 12:30 a.m. after receiving reports of an armed robbery at the Sunoco gas station.

Officers said that as they were responding to the scene, they observed a man matching the dispatcher's description running between the Brandywine Apartments and the Publix grocery store, located in the same block as the gas station on St. James Avenue.

Police said they left their vehicle and a brief foot chase ensued, which ended in the Brandywine Apartment complex.

According to police, 19-year-old Aaron Devaughn Green was found carrying a large amount of cash.  The convenience store clerk was brought to the scene and confirmed that Green committed the robbery.

As officers continued to search the area, they found a black book bag, which the clerk also reported seeing during the robbery.  Officers were unable to locate the silver handgun which the clerk said was used during the incident, according to the report.

Green was taken to the Berkeley County Detention Center.  He is charged with armed robbery.
