AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a robbery suspect's desire for a haircut shortly after holding up a fast food restaurant helped lead to his arrest.

Police allege Hector Raul Chavez robbed a Wendy's restaurant in Austin and then right afterward, drove to a barber shop.

The Austin American-Statesman reports that after being told by a witness about Chavez's whereabouts, police found him getting a haircut.

According to an arrest affidavit, Chavez acknowledged to police that cash officers found in his car had been taken from the restaurant during the Saturday robbery.

The 21-year-old Chavez was charged with aggravated robbery and remains jailed on a $50,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney for him.
