A man has been arrested in connection with the death of the owner of a Mesa smoke shop.

Mesa police announced Monday that 23-year-old Chad Stevens is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder, robbery and burglary. They say businesses neighboring the smoke shop heard commotion about 1 p.m. Friday and called police.

As police pulled up to the business, they saw a man walking away and witnesses told officers that it was the suspect who came from the shop.

Police say Stevens took off running before he was arrested at a nearby apartment complex.

When officers went into the smoke shop, they found 59-year-old Abdou G. Abdou dead. Police he’s the owner and operator of the business.

Authorities didn’t immediately know Monday if Stevens has a lawyer yet.
