A Columbia man remained in Boone County Jail on Saturday afternoon in connection with the Jan. 20 armed robbery of the Ultra Mart on Monroe Street, police said.

Randy Fullerton, 45, was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action. A Columbia Police officer found evidence in Fullerton’s blue 1991 Mercury Tracer during a traffic stop that police said linked him to the robbery. The Tracer, which had some body damage, matched the image of a car captured on surveillance video during the robbery.

Police said a man armed with a gun entered the store and demanded money from the cashier.

Fullerton will remain in jail in lieu of $200,000 bond.
