Authorities in the Plymouth County community put out a be-on-the-lookout for a grey Ford Ranger and a man wearing all black clothing after reviewing security tape, a news release said. The Ranger was spotted by state troopers at around 9 p.m. near Falmouth.

The suspect — identified by authorities as Owen Lang, 20, of Kingston — didn't stop right away for police, but was taken into custody shortly after by Falmouth police, authorities said.

Lang is currently facing an armed robbery charge, and authorities said he may face additional charges from the brief chase.

Lang was taken to the Plymouth County House of Correction ahead of his arraignment.
