Metro police have arrested the alleged shotgun-wielding robber who held up a Donelson Pike beer and tobacco shop Sunday evening and a Joelton convenience store Monday night.

Jeffery Halstead, 30, is jailed on a variety of charges including aggravated burglary, vehicle theft, felony theft, felony vandalism and felony drug charges.

He was arrested late Monday night after an officer spotted a stolen pickup truck at a convenience store on North Gallatin Pike.
