A short time later, Hannibal police officers located and arrested Donovan Cooper, 21, on charges of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.

A handgun believed to be used in the robbery was recovered.

A warrant was issued by the Circuit Court of Marion County charging Cooper with first degree robbery and armed criminal action.

Bond was set at $100,000. Cooper remains in the Marion County Jail. 

The Hannibal Police Department was assisted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
