Man arrested in Florida after robbing gas station in Michigan

Daytona Beach, Fla. A man accused of holding up a gas station in Downtown Coloma last month was taken into custody Thursday, more than a thousand miles away.

23-year-old Martin Hinrichs was caught in Daytona Beach, Florida, Thursday afternoon after he allegedly threatened to assault another man on a boardwalk. Officers say he was intoxicated and resisted arrest, even breaking the back window of a patrol car on his way to jail.

The search for Hinrichs began back on September 20, when police say he walked into the Wesco Gas Station on North Paw Paw Street wearing a zombie mask, pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the clerk. Surveillance video showed that he left the scene with some cash.

Hinrichs was booked into the Volusia County Jail in Florida on charges of assault, disorderly conduct and providing a false name upon arrest. He is scheduled to appear in court there Friday.

Hinrichs will later be extradited back to Michigan to face charges of armed robbery and unlawful imprisonment.
