A 20-year-old Mt. Washington man was arrested by police shortly after holding up a gas station in Taylorsville Wednesday afternoon.
Curtis A. Blandford, of 270 Harrison Circle, was charged with second degree robbery and taken to Shelby County Detention Center. Bond has been set at $10,000.
Blandford was in police custody within 30 minutes of his alleged robbery of Country Mart’s fuel station. Lt. Rick Jewell, of the Taylorsville Police Department, said credit for the quick arrest goes to Jacob Barmore, a teacher at Spencer County High School.
