There has already been an arrest made in the armed robbery of Dollar General on 9149 Lima Road that took place Tuesday morning at 8:15am. 

Police have apprehended 21 year old Alexander A. White.

A Dollar General employee said White came into the store, armed, and with a bandana covering his face.  He left with an undisclosed amount of cash.  Upon arriving at the scene, a Fort Wayne K9 officer was able to track from the store to a home on Village Drive.

Officers set up a perimeter around the house and at about 9:40am, White walked out of the home.

After obtaining a search warrant, officers found items that are believed to have been used in the robbery.  Michael Joyner with the Fort Wayne Police Department says the arrest was a group effort.

"It's great police work, no doubt.  It was also good information provided to us by the victim in this particular case, the employee.  He gave us a great description and was able to give us a direction of travel."
