Newton Falls Police have arrested the suspect of an armed robbery incident at a local Sunoco store that occurred Saturday morning.

Police sources tell 21 News that 24-year-old Adam McDermott was arrested Saturday afternoon. Police say he was found on Route 5 near West Branch State Park in Ravenna.

The Portage County Sheriff's Office, OSP and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) assisted in the arrest. Police also credited Trumbull County Dispatch for their assistance in locating McDermott. 

According to the police department's Facebook page, witnesses say McDermott went into the store, placed a rifle on the counter and demanded money and proceeded to flee the scene in his vehicle.

McDermott is currently in the Trumbull County Jail where he is facing a charge of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. He is scheduled for a video arraignment on Monday, October 24.

The incident remains under investigation.
