GARDEN CITY, Idaho — The Garden City Police (GCP) have arrested a suspect in a robbery that happened at the Garden City Walmart on Thursday, Aug. 3. They also said he was responsible for two other robberies in the past few weeks. Police arrested 55-year-old Warren Shawn of Garden City on Sunday, Aug. 6.

Police said he is also on parole, and they think a warrant will also be issued by the Idaho Department of Connections. His arraignment is scheduled for Aug., 7 at 1:30 p.m. 

Police said the suspect walked into Vista Pawn and showed a gun Friday evening, demanding money. He left the store and drove away in the pickup after employees refused to listen to his demands. 

The white GMC pickup was seen driving south in the parking lot behind the D&B Supply following the attempted robbery Friday, according to Garden City Police. 

On Thursday morning, the suspect left Walmart in the truck with "an undisclosed amount of money." He also demanded money after approaching a Walmart employee.
