Lubbock police have charged 25-year-old Albert Jones with an armed robbery that happened Thursday morning at CVS at 34th Street and Slide Road.

Police say it happened around 3:40 a.m.

Police say the suspect had a bandana covering his face and was carrying a rifle. The police report states the suspect asked for cigarettes at the counter and then passed a small piece of paper to the clerk demanding money from the register. The clerk gave the suspect the money from the register and the suspect ran out of the store.

The employee told police the suspect never pointed the rifle directly at him.

Jones is charged with robbery and possession of marijuana.
