Police have arrested a man suspected of robbing a convenience store at gunpoint. Kyle Kano was booked into the Box Elder County Jail late Friday afternoon on suspicion of armed robbery. The 40-year-old was arrested after officers received a tip as to his location.
Box Elder County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Dale Ward said Kano was wanted on a no bail warrant from the 2nd District Court for violating his probation. Upon his arrest, evidence was recovered linking him to the robbery of the Bear River Country Market. He was taken into custody without incident.
Deputies allege that Kano entered the Bear River City gas station displaying a handgun Wednesday afternoon, making off with an undisclosed amount of money. He was seen on video camera inside the store and driving away in a tan colored Subaru Forrester.
Deputies later located the car Thursday morning. It matched the description of a vehicle reported stolen on Tuesday in Weber County.
Kano’s arrest came after investigators asked for the public’s help, identifying him from video camera footage.
Ward said the quick arrest of Kano was thanks in part to cooperation between multiple law enforcement agencies, working together in Box Elder County. He explained that information sharing and hard work between agencies was key to the crime being solved in a quick, safe and efficient manner.
Kano is being on the warrant, robbery and automobile theft. He is expected to be arraigned in court later this week.
