Zachary man accused of cash grab at store booked

A 50-year-old man accused of reaching into a convenience store cash register and stealing cash Monday night was arrested after police found him a few blocks away on a bicycle.

Alfred Minor, 4192 Honeysuckle Drive, Zachary, was booked with first-degree robbery, Zachary Police Chief David McDavid said Tuesday.

The robbery occurred at the Cracker Barrel store at La. 19 and La. 64.

McDavid said Minor went into the store to buy a candy bar.

The cashier thought Minor might have had a gun in his pocket even though a weapon was not visible, McDavid said.
