A Windsor man was arrested Thursday on charges of robbery and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person after a robbery was reported at the Augusta Kwik Mart on Western Avenue.

Anthony Manganella, 35, allegedly showed a handgun to the cashier about 11:43 a.m. Thursday at the store and left with an undisclosed amount of money, according to an Augusta police news release. A Maine State Police dog unit was called to investigate, but a short time later, Sgt. Christopher Shaw found Manganella, who matched the description of the suspect, police said.

Manganella’s bail was set at $25,000 cash and he is in the Kennebec County jail.

No one was hurt in the hold-up, police said.
