LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - An arrest is made in a crime committed over a year and a half ago in Smiths, AL.

Stephen Pritchett was arrested Monday on robbery charges. Police say Pritchett robbed two gas stations on the same day in May 2008.

The first business robbery was at The Panther Quick Stop where the suspect allegedly took beer and cigarettes and demanded money with no success. He then reportedly robbed Citgo Busy Bee and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Pritchett has been released on a $20,000 bond.
