Authorities say the apparently unarmed man got away with an unknown amount of cash but was seen and photographed fleeing the area in a blue Jeep Liberty.  

Deputies spotted the vehicle at a nearby Advanced Auto Parts on U.S. 41 and detained Thompson for questioning when he came out of the store.

Thompson is being held on a $75,000 bond.
