SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Police in coastal Georgia say charges will likely be filed against a man who robbed a health food store and was caught while authorities were conducting a training exercise.

Savannah Chatham Metropolitan Police spokesman Julian Miller says a 20-year-old man accused of robbing a GNC store near the area where SWAT and K-9 officers were training on Thursday was arrested after authorities canvassed the area to search for him.

Miller says an officer who was familiar with the suspect because of a previous case arrested him.

Miller says the man’s name will not be released until authorities are done investigating the incident.
