    @Don’t Matter, sorry to tell ya but yes he was there, and also video shows him other places in century, ya see there’s more than one camera in century and all has been collected. Hope he tells them he was in Brewton with his girlfriend or at work at the chicken place in Brewton. He’s 6’4” 340 lbs not hard to miss. And yes he has been charged twice already for same thing in Century, he’s just been lucky enough not to come across the wrong clerk.

    @Don’t matter: You mean that nobody hunted you down to go over the video surveillance with you? The Sheriff’s Office didn’t consult with you? The nerve of them!

    This guy has robbed multiple stores in the past. And he just got out of jail in Brewton, AL. Maybe the judge need to give him what he deserves “LIFE”. People like him need to be locked up. He just scared me

    “Don’t Matter” The Sheriff’s office has had more than a week to investigate and this is the person they say robbed the store. He’s either a regular customer, known to employees, clear enough to identify on video or he dropped his wallet. Past behavior predicts future behavior.

    I know that it was really him cause my fiance and I were sitting in the parking lot when he came around the store with the white shirt wrapped around his face with the gun sticking out his pocket waving at us telling us to leave…we did so and called the police. He might have been fasley accused some other time but not this time.

    It’s usually called “caught on camera”. Most if not all stores have a camera pointed right at the register. Get him off the streets!

    @ “Don’t matter”….. What?????

    How do y’all really kw that he did it? Not once was said they had evidence,eye witness nor proof of nothing. Can’t judge a man on his past history. Just cause he known of robbering stores in the past don’t mean he did it this time. Hell they fasley accused him the first time so what make y’all think it isn’t faslely accused this round?

    ..30 years behind bars might mellow him a bit…

    I just saw him about 3 hours ago in Brewton.

    Dang that’s like the 3rd time he robbed a store. Don’t approach him call crime stoppers from a far people!
