The suspect in an armed robbery at a fast-food restaurant Wednesday that was captured on surveillance video faces federal charges of possessing an illegal firearm.

According to

, Terry K. Rayford, 54, was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm in a criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Kansas City.

The dramatic video showed the suspect walking into a local Jimmy Johns and pulling a gun from the front pocket of his sweatshirt. He then proceeded to point the gun at the employee behind the counter and demanding money. At one point, the barrel of the gun was only inches away from the victim's face.

To his credit, the Jimmy Johns worker maintained his cool while the pistol was pointed at him, even going so far as to take off the plastic glove he was wearing before opening the register. After handing over the cash, the employee showed him the empty. The robber grabbed a stray dollar bill that had fallen back onto the drawer and took off.

The suspect was taken into custody, Kansas City police said in an update to

the YouTube video

they posted Thursday.

The incident remains under investigation, they added.
