A Redding man was arrested Monday for allegedly robbing the Dutch Bros on S. Market Street Sunday.

The suspect reportedly robbed the coffee shop around Sunday while wearing a hoodie, baseball cap and red bandanna.

The incident was caught on surveillance and a Redding Police officer spotted a similar bandana hanging over the fence of a residence just down the street.

Officers contacted the resident, 21-year-old Casey Lyons and found that he had a felony warrant out for his arrest. Lyons refused to cooperate, so police surrounded the home and talked Lyons into surrendering over the phone.

Police eventually took Lyons into custody and a subsequent search of the home led officers to the clothes worn during the robbery.
