A 23-year-old man was arrested for an armed robbery that police say occurred at a Walgreens parking lot Saturday in Abingdon.

Deputies from the Harford County Sheriff's Office were called to the Walgreens in the 3000 block of Emmorton Road for an armed robbery of a person shortly after 9 p.m. Saturday night.

When police arrived, they discovered a female victim had just withdrawn cash from the ATM inside the store and was returning to her car when she was approached by a man who was armed with what appeared to be a handgun.

The suspect ran off with an undisclosed about of cash.  The victim was uninjured, police said.

Through investigations, detectives were able to identify the suspect's vehicle, which led them to 23-year-old Mickey J. Tasker.

Deputies located Tasker in the 3100 block of White Oak Drive on Sunday morning in Abingdon and arrested him without incident.

Tasker was charged with armed robbery, robbery, theft less that $100, firearm use in commission of a felony, first degree assault and second degree assault.

Tasker is currently being held at the Harford County Detention Center on $75,000 bail.
