Man Arrested in Connection with Robbery Outside of 7-Eleven

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

A man is behind bars after robbing a man outside of a 7-Eleven.

Money Joe Belcher, 30, was arrested Friday after he decided to rob a man in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven at 721 North County Road West. 

Shortly after 7:00 p.m. Thursday, a man called Odessa Police saying he was putting air into his car tires, when a man approached him and the two began to argue. He said that the man began to hit him in the case, which caused him to fall. He added that the man stomped on his face, then took his cell phone before running off.

Authorities later identified the suspect as Belcher.

Police found the suspect after they pulled him over on the 2200 block of E. 8th Street for driving with an expired license plate.

Belcher was taken into custody, and later admitted to punching and kicking the man before swiping his cell phone.

The suspect has been charged and arrested after police obtained a warrant for robbery.
