Guam - Police have arrested 25-year-old Anthony Leon Guerrero Campos, Jr. in connection with last Friday's armed robbery at Route 8 Mini Mart in Barrigada. Campos was picked up by Criminal Investigation Division agents today and faces a slew of charges including robbery, reckless conduct, terrorizing, possession and use of a firearm without a firearms ID, possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, and unlawful discharge. 

The Mongmong man is accused of going into the store, armed with a handgun and demanding money from the cashier.  He fired one round at the counter and walked out with $40. Campos remains behind bars. 

He has one prior criminal case in the Superior Court - in 2011 he was charged with possession of a controlled substance with the intent to distribute.  Court officials say he went through Drug Court and the case has been closed.

The armed robbery case meanwhile remains under investigation.
