HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) - Police have arrested a man they say was the getaway driver in an armed robbery in Hastings.

The Grand Island Independent (http://bit.ly/1Q8ZfkB ) reports a 23-year-old was arrested around 1 a.m. Wednesday. The suspect is accused of being involved in a robbery Tuesday at a local store.

According to authorities, a 26-year-old, who was arrested Tuesday, went into the store armed with a shotgun and demanded money.

An arrest affidavit says the 26-year-old admitted to the robbery and said the second suspect was his getaway driver. The affidavit also says they were supposed to split the money from the robbery.
