Bolton's Store Clerk Helps Police Catch Robbery Suspect

Lubbock Sheriff's Office Lubbock Sheriff's Office

A Lubbock convenience clerk is being hailed a hero after setting up the man who tried to rob his store.

The would-be bandit entered the Bolton's at 80th and Slide shortly after 8pm Wednesday night. He then told the clerk that a man outside would kill him if he didn't get all the money in the cash register. The clerk called his bluff, refused to hand over the money, and said he would call police to help the man.

When police showed up, they arrested the suspect, Joe Santiago Junior. He is now charged with robbery.
