LAREDO, TX. (KGNS) -A man is facing charges after allegedly robbing a convenience store and making threats to law enforcement officers.

Laredo Police arrested 38-year-old Malcolm Charles Tears II in the case.

The incident happened on May 3 at around 10 p.m. when police received a panic alarm from a convenience store located on Saunders and McPherson.
