A Garden City man has been arrested in connection with the robbery of the Premier Liquor store in Holcomb.

According to the Finney County Sheriff's Office, after collecting evidence and receiving information about the liquor store robbery, authorities arrested Ryan Ray, 36, at 2210 Menke Road, Apt. 6. Sheriff Kevin Bascue would not specify what evidence led authorities to Ray, saying the investigation is ongoing.

According to prior sheriff's reports about the incident on Jan. 28, a person who at first seemed to be making a purchase at Premier Liquor instead took an unknown amount of cash from the register when an employee opened it, then fled the store on foot.

Ray is lodged at the Finney County Jail with no bond on allegations of robbery, theft of property services and possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to use. There is no bond on these charges.

Ray also had a warrant out for his arrest for a probation violation, with a bond on the warrant of $5,000.
