Police arrest man accused of using scissors to rob gas station

BRANDON — Tampa police found and arrested a man accused of robbing a gas station Tuesday with a pair of scissors.

Michael Greene, 51, was picked up Thursday at 3206 E Henry Ave. and was being taken to the Orient Road Jail.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's office issued a warrant for Greene's arrest Wednesday. Deputies said he forced a cashier into the back of the Mobil 1 store at 615 E Bloomingdale Ave. with the scissors, and grabbed money out of the register.

He then left and rode south on Kings Avenue on a bike.

Greene will be charged with armed robbery, the Sheriff's Office said.
