A man is behind bars after police say he robbed a west Chatham County convenience store over the weekend.

Just before 5am yesterday morning, Savannah-Chatham police were called to the Circle K convenience store at Quacco Road and Highway 17. The clerk says a man walked in, pulled a handgun and demanded money. The suspect followed the clerk behind the counter and she handed him the entire cash drawer. He fled the scene, but the entire incident was caught on the store's surveillance camera.

About 11:30am yesterday morning, police arrested this man, identified as 22-year-old Julian Bryant. This morning he's in the Chatham County jail charged with armed robbery and obstruction.

Police also recovered a stolen vehicle they say was used in the crime.
