"The owner of the business was taking the trash out Saturday night," Hargett said. "The man told the owner he had a gun."
Hargett said the cash was taken from the cash register, and the two small laptop was taken as the suspect left the business.
Hargett said $500 was taken from the register and two small laptops were taken as Odom fled the business on foot.
Odom is being held in the Russellville City Jail pending a bond hearing in District Court.
In an unrelated case, another theft occurred over the weekend. Hargett said officers were called to Marty's Meat Market Sunday night after someone drove a vehicle into the front of the store and took money from the business.
"Approximately $1,000 was taken from this business," Hargett said.
