Tetorian Cooper, wanted by Metro police for allegedly robbing a convenience store and later kidnapping a longtime acquaintance, surrendered to police Tuesday.

Cooper, 31, is charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and violating his probation stemming from a 2006 case.

Cooper called police before noon and said he was in the parking lot of the Sidco Drive Waffle House and wanted to surrender. He was later jailed Tuesday afternoon and held without bond pending a hearing.

Police charged Cooper in connection with the Aug. 18 armed robbery of the Mapco market at 18 E. Thompson Lane and the Oct. 5 kidnapping of a acquaintance who was a manager at the same Mapco.

According to police, Cooper was sentenced to six years in 2006 for aggravated assault.
