TWIN FALLS – A man on suspicion of robbing a cash advance store in Twin Falls has been arrested.

Stanley started running, but MPs only had to chase him about a block, Jensen said.
“We had no idea he was the theft suspect,” Jensen said. “Then we put him in jail and put two and two together.”
Stanley was incarcerated in Cassia County Jail for illegal possession of a firearm by a felony, which is a felony, and carrying a concealed weapon without a license, providing false information to law enforcement, resistance or obstruction of agents and conduct without privileges, all of which are offenses.
