— A Center Point man has been arrested for the Monday robbery of a payday loan store in Forestdale.

Curtis Williams, 29, was arrested Tuesday night by Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies for an outstanding felony robbery warrant, as well as failure to appear on charges of possession of marijuana. While being questioned, Williams confessed to being one of two men who robbed the store in the 1500 block of Forestdale Blvd.

Employees of the store had recognized Williams during the robbery, which occurred around 2 p.m. Deputies then found the outstanding charges and determined Williams' location. The arrest took place about 9 p.m. at the suspect's home.

Williams is held without bond in the county jail on charges of first degree robbery, second degree robbery and possession of marijuana.

The other robber has not been identified, and remains at large.
