An Astoria man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at Dairy Queen last week.

Gerald Lee Haynes, 42, was arrested by Astoria police Thursday morning.

Haynes was allegedly armed with a small pistol and took an undisclosed amount of money from the West Marine Drive restaurant just after 10 p.m. on Aug. 31.

A Dairy Queen employee told police she saw Haynes return to the restaurant sometime after the robbery, Astoria Police Chief Geoff Spalding said. She then reported seeing him near Dutch Bros on Marine Drive. Soon after the report, police took him into custody near Florence and Taylor avenues.

Haynes has been charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree theft and possession of a weapon with intent to use.
