U.S. Marshals in Florida arrested Antonio Barreto Tuesday on an active warrant held by the Norwalk Police Department, police said.

The robbery took place at 11:10 a.m. Sept. 9 at Gold Rush Pawn Shop, located at 495 Connecticut Ave. Police said two suspects robbed the business, including one who displayed a handgun.

The federal marshals tracked Barreto to Kissimmee, Fla., where he was located and taken into custody, according to police.

He is pictured in a surveillance photo taken of the robbery, said police.

Barreto will be extradited to Connecticut to face charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree larceny and conspiracy, according to police.

Donald Outlaw, Barreto's alleged co-conspirator, was arrested by U.S. Marshals on Sept. 29 and faces the same charges, said Norwalk Police.
