Police arrest man wanted in gas station hold-up

Buffalo Police nabbed a North Buffalo man late Friday who was wanted in connection with the armed robbery of a convenience store back in April.

Terrance Hinkle, 21, of the 200-block of Commonwealth Avenue, was arrested at a traffic stop on Hertel Avenue late Friday night and was found to be in possession of four bags of marijuana, according to the police report.

Police said Hinkle is the same man suspected of holding up a store clerk at gunpoint at the Sunoco A-Plus gas station and convenience store at Hertel and Colvin avenues on April 26. In that incident, a robber took about $400 from the store clerk and fled, according to the report.

Hinkle is charged with first-degree armed robbery and misdemeanor marijuana possession.
