The suspect, who is an employee of the restaurant, was arrested when he walked in to visit with other employees while a detective was at the location speaking with the manager about the crime.

On July 27 the suspect returned wearing a mask after finishing his shift and robbed the restaurant at gunpoint. While he was there, several other employees recognized him and thought he was playing a practical joke. When he left with an undisclosed amount of money, the manager called 911 and reported the robbery.

The suspect was arrested but denies any involvement in the robbery. He was charged with Robbery 1st Degree and is being held in the Jefferson County Jail on $20,000 bond. His name is being withheld pending formal charges.
