Short time later after the incident, deputies conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle that matched the description of the one used during the robbery and found Mccallum to be the driver.
During the investigation it was found that Mccallum drove the vehicle to the location and was present during the robbery.
Deputies say they searched the car and found the victim’s play station 2 in the trunk.
