ODESSA - An Odessa man is behind bars after a weekend robbery at an Odessa business.

Odessa Police tells NewsWest 9, 29-year-old Hugo Herman Moolenaar, Jr., was arrested and charged in connection with a robbery at Boost Mobile on North Dixie.

Police were called out to Boost Mobile just before 3 p.m. Saturday afternoon when a clerk reported to officers that a male had entered the store asking for the store manager's phone number. The clerk then contacted the store manager and allowed Moolenaar to speak to her by phone. Moolenaar then became agitated and started yelling at the manager through the phone. Moolenaar then began yelling threats at the clerk and demanded, "everything you got."
