Armed Robbery Charges: Man Stuffs Sausage Inside Pants, Pulls Knife
August 25, 2011
Charles Truman Davis, 62, remained in the Escambia County Jail on the armed robbery charge early Friday morning. His bond was set at $50,000.
An employee at the Piggly Wiggly on Highway 97 in Davisville reported seeing Davis place four packs of Conecuh Sausage — worth $4.29 each — into his pants. Before leaving, Davis reportedly pulled a four-inch pocket knife and told the store employee, “You don’t know me. I’ll cut your guts out”, according to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
The store’s security guard and another employee tailed the alleged sausage thief’s bicycle into Atmore where he was detained by the Atmore Police Department. The stolen sausage was never found; authorities believe Davis disposed of it when he realized he was being followed.
