XENIA, Ohio, April 10 (UPI) -- Police in Ohio said a robber showed his ID to a store clerk before pulling out a handgun and demanding the money from the register.

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.
