TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police have released the identity of the suspect in an armed robbery of a midtown smoke shop on Nov. 12.

Police have obtained an arrest warrant for Adrian Pride, 18. They say Pride allegedly robbed the Maui Smoke Shop located at 1099 East Broadway Boulevard.

Anyone with information about Pride's whereabouts is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
