JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a tattoo helped them track down a suspect in an armed robbery at a New Jersey liquor store.

The two men who robbed the Jersey City store Tuesday night both wore masks. But police tell The Jersey Journal (http://bit.ly/1MUqFHe) one of the robbers had a tattoo of the name "Yolanda" on his left forearm.

The men made off with $1,300 in cash, a bottle of liquor and 15 cigars and fled the scene on bikes. But the tattoo eventually led authorities to 18-year-old Tycarn Hundley, who faces robbery and weapons charges.

Hundley's bail was set at $200,000, and it wasn't known Saturday if he's retained an attorney. If convicted on the robbery count, he could face up to 20 years in prison.

The second suspect remains at large.
