A Big Spring man is behind bars charged in connection with a Midland liquor store robbery that happened last month.

The Howard County Sheriff's Office caught up with 32-year old Phillip Garcia on Monday.

Midland police say Garcia and another man tried to rip off a Pinkie's Convenience Store on north Big Spring, back on April 29th.

We're told the two went in and demanded cash, but they left empty handed because the employee couldn't get the cash register open.

Investigators are still trying to identify the other suspect.
