STUART, Florida (WPEC) -- Atlantis police identified Heather Brianna Kelly, 25, of Fort Pierce as the suspect in a gas station robbery caught on surveillance video early Tuesday morning. 

WATCH: Crystal-clear footage of the thief in action

Atlantis police Det. Marvin Jenne reports that Kelly was pulled over by an FHP trooper on a speeding violation on I-95 in Palm City last week. She was arrested on an outstanding warrant for a probation violation from another county and is in Martin County's jail. 

In a jailhouse interview, Kelly reportedly admitted to Atlantis police that she was the robber. 

Surveillance video from the Chevron gas station at Lantana and Congress shows a young woman jumping over the counter to open a cash register at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 11. The store clerk returns and the suspect flees back over the counter, losing a flip-flop in the process as the clerk hit the floor. 

Police say she escaped with a couple hundred dollars.
