Police apprehended a 22-year-old robbery suspect Thursday after the man threatened US Title Pawn employees with a BB pistol, according to a Columbus Police Department news release.

Shawn Thomas Sconiers walked into the 3290 Victory Drive pawn shop and demanded the business' money around 6 p.m., police said. He fled shortly after, additionally taking the clerk's credit and debit cards, according to the report.
