Police say three armed men wearing masks robbed the Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, NC of $500,000, but left a trail of cash that led to at least one arrest.

Multiple media outlets report that police say 22-year-old Adjani Jari Bryant was arrested shortly after Monday's robbery of the amphitheatre's business office.

Bryant faces 24 charges, including armed robbery, second-degree kidnapping and conspiracy.

Authorities say a 911 call reported that the office had been robbed. Police say the robbers also took employees' cellphones and wallets. 

Bryant is being held in the Wake County jail. It was unclear if he has an attorney.

Police say one of the backpacks that Bryant was carrying spilled a trail of cash that officers followed to a nearby shed. They are looking for the other two suspects.

The Live Nation venue keeps a busy schedule during the summer concert season, with Toby Keith and Fall Out Boy on tap this upcoming weekend. The last concert to have taken place before the robbery appears to have been Kid Rock, who brought his Cheap Date Tour to town on Saturday, July 11.
