A 25-year-old man was arrested minutes after robbing the Cop Shoppe Pub in Wausau.
Cathie Shaefer is a bartender at the pub that was started named by two retired Wausau police officers.
She says she recognized the man because not only had he been in the pub before, but he also signed up for a weekly raffle.
Schaefer says the man was at the pub about half an hour yesterday when she went into the back area.
Others in the pub say they heard a commotion and saw him come out from behind the bar, grab his jacket and flee.
When Schaefer checked the till, about $475 was missing.
The man is being held pending formal charges.
