DAVENPORT, Iowa -- A Davenport man with a lengthy arrest record, including failure to register as a sex offender, has been arrested in connection with the Nov. 6 robbery at a Mt. Joy gas station that injured one of the store's employees.

Seith W. Keith, 30, was arrested Tuesday afternoon by Davenport police at the intersection of E. Locust and Iowa streets. Police say Keith was on parole at the time and had a GPS ankle monitor that showed he was at the BP in Mt. Joy at the time of the robbery.

He was on parole from serving time for a 2013 drug charge and a concurrent burglary charge.

Keith remains in the Scott County Jail.
