An Edgewood man remained jailed yesterday after being charged in an armed robbery at a convenience store Sunday, the Harford County sheriff's office said.

Charles C. Davis, 39, of the 1000 block of Agate Drive was charged with handgun violations, assault and theft, police said.

According to the statement of charges, a man entered the 7-Eleven in the 1000 block of Gateway Drive in Edgewood about 11 p.m., showed the clerk a weapon and told him, "Nice and calmly give me all the money." The man drove away in a white car.

Minutes later, a sheriff's deputy saw a white car at a nearby gas station, and a man fitting the description of the robber at a fuel pump. The man was arrested, and nearly $240 was recovered. A starter pistol was found under the passenger seat of the car, the sheriff's office said.

Davis was being held last night on $20,000 bail at the county Detention Center, said Lt. Ed Hopkins, a sheriff's office spokesman.
