Police: Employees Disarm, Hold Would-Be Robber
Officers were called to a drive-in restaurant Tuesday night where employees disarmed and restrained a robbery suspect.
Employees at Boots and Sonny’s Drive-in on East Henry Street said that an armed man had come into the business through an unsecured rear service door at about 9 p.m.
They said that the man pointed a silver handgun at employees and demanded money from the safe.
The employees scuffled with the man and disarmed him. They restrained him in the kitchen until officers arrived.
Officers arrested 21-year-old Alvin Dean Edwards of Spartanburg. He was taken into custody without further incident.
