A Florida man passing through Meridian was arrested Sunday, after he allegedly robbed the BP gas station at College Park. Felipe Aguilar was arrested in the Bonita area after witnesses say he held up the clerk at knifepoint.

"A witness on the scene saw the license plate and reported the vehicle," said Meridian detective Dean Harper. "An off-duty officer spotted the vehicle over in the Bonita area and called patrol officers and they took him into custody."

The weapon and the money were recovered. No one was injured in the incident.
