Xenia police said Hanson Price, 21, showed his driver's license to the clerk at the United Dairy Farmer's on West Second Street just after midnight March 30 to purchase a 59-cent Black and Mild Cigar and paid with a $1 bill before drawing his 9mm Lugar handgun and demanding the money from the register, the Dayton (Ohio) Daily Register reported Tuesday.
Investigators said Price, who fled with $72, was soon arrested and the gun was recovered from the west side of South Miami Avenue.
Price, who was jailed in lieu of $100,000 bond, was charged with aggravated robbery with a firearm. If convicted, he would face a minimum three year prison sentence, police said.
