COLUMBIA — Police arrested a man Tuesday in connection with the Sunday armed robbery at Passions Adult Entertainment Store, according to a Columbia Police Department news release.

Derrick Orlando Webster of Columbia was arrested at 12:50 p.m. Tuesday.

Webster, 35, faces a charge for unlawful concealment of a weapon with a bond set at $4,500. He also faces charges of armed criminal action and robbery in the first degree with bonds for both charges still to be set.

The victim identified Webster as the suspect through a photo line-up after two Crime Stoppers reports. Police acquired the photo from video surveillance footage.

The suspect had selected two videos, then approached the clerk with a handgun and demanded money, according to previous reporting. Nobody was injured.

Webster was sentenced to four months in Boone County Jail in 2011 after pleading guilty to domestic assault, to be served concurrently with a six-month sentence for failing to pay spousal or child support. In the same year he was sentenced to four years in prison for possession of marijuana, according to Missouri court records.

Supervising editor is Stephanie Ebbs.
