Court documents show new details about the Cenex robbery that left police searching for a suspect for more than a week.

Terrance Monterio Gourdine, 27, was arrested Saturday and charged with robbery and preventing arrest .

Gourdine allegedly walked into the Orton's Cenex Gas Station at 2002 S. Washington St. about 11 p.m. Sept. 23 and demanded cash from the register, the affidavit said. The clerk told police Gourdine was wearing a mask and had a gun in his left hand, according to the affidavit.

Gourdine allegedly took the till, cash and 14 packs of Newport cigarettes and ran from the store, court documents said.

Police found the till by K-9 search but were unable to locate Gourdine, a press release said.

Homeowners on the 1700 block of South 17th Street called police Sept. 25 because security footage showed a man matching the robbery description ringing their doorbell and walking toward another home, the affidavit said.
Police contacted Gourdine after matching him to the home the man in the video was seen walking into, the affidavit said. Police also noted a strong resemblance with the video footage.

During a police interview Saturday, Gourdine told police he was left handed and smoked Newport cigarettes. The affidavit said he was wearing the same shoes in the videos.

Gourdine told police he was at home all day and did not rob the gas station, the affidavit said.

He tried to run from police as they arrested him, the affidavit said.

If convicted, Gourdine could face up to 10 years behind bars. He's scheduled to enter a plea Nov. 5.
