A man is behind bars after he was allegedly caught stealing cash from an Orange County gas station.

Around 4 a.m. Tuesday, a man wearing a mask over his face walked into a Mobil gas station in Monroe while wearing gloves and carrying a bag.

The man walked to the counter with the intention of robbing the clerk, police say. However, the clerk was in a storage room. He noticed the man enter the gas station on video and called police.

The suspect then allegedly opened up the cash register, stole all the money and fled on a bicycle.

Responding officers found a person who matched the suspect on Heritage Trail. The man had money that was stolen from the gas station on him, police say.

A search of the area allegedly revealed more undisclosed evidence that linked the man to the crime.
