The two tussled over the money but Jefferson ended up getting approximately $96.00 cash and a $15.00 check before fleeing.

Surveillance video from a convenience store from Nov. 2 helped lead authorities to Jefferson. Jefferson was in custody on unrelated charges in Dodge County before he was arrested for the robbery.
