Ada man accused of stealing cigarettes at knife point

ADA, Minn. - A pack of cigarettes could cost an Ada man years in prison.

The Norman County Sheriff's Office arrested Anthony Morton at his home Sunday after authorities say witnesses identified him as a man who pointed a knife at a teller at the Ada County Store.

Authorities allege that at about noon Sunday, Morton asked the teller for a pack of cigarettes, brandished a knife and then ran. He was quickly arrested for aggravated robbery.

The weapon and cigarettes were recovered at his home.
