CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Just a few snaps of a camera phone made a big difference in cracking an attempted robbery case. A suspect has been arrested for trying to rob Clarksville military supply store Army Town at gunpoint. The victim was able to get valuable clues to police when he shared pictures of the crook in his getaway vehicle.

Adam Yoon, of Clarksville, said a man in a mask burst into his Tiny Town Road business last week and pointed a gun at him.  

"He aimed the gun at me and said, 'Give me the money!'" said Yoon. 

Yoon said he turned around and bolted out the back of the store with the masked man chasing behind him.

"He followed me shouting, 'Money! Money!'" said Yoon. "I ran away from him. He followed me."

Yoon said he made it outside and ran next to the heavy traffic of Tiny Town Road. The masked man jumped into his vehicle parked at the church next door and sped away. Before he was gone, Yoon pulled out his phone and snapped pictures of the vehicle.

Clarksville police released that picture to the public. Soon after, a caller to the Crime Stoppers Tips Line recognized it.

Caleb Scott Holloway is now charged with an attempted robbery that didn't get a cent from Yoon's store. He's being held at the Montgomery County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
