Five midstate men were indicted in Bibb County Superior Court on Tuesday for their alleged roles in a July holdup at a south Macon Krystal.
In the late-night July 24 robbery, bandits made off with a cash drawer. They also took cell phones from people inside the Pio Nono Avenue eatery.
Macon police chased down their getaway car about a mile away off E Street, not far from the Interstate 75 interchange at Eisenhower Parkway.
Before the getaway car crashed into a stop sign, police said the bandits tossed out the cash drawer and a gun.
The suspects, all in their early to mid-20s, are: Elio Demechee Bryant of McIntyre, and Anthony Tyquan Barnett, Joseph Jeremiah Jordan, Brandon Leigh Smith and Warrick Evans, all of Macon.
They were being held at the Bibb County jail Tuesday, where most have been since the summer. Evans was locked up earlier this month, according to jail records.
The indictment noted that Bryant, who was 25 when he was arrested in July, was convicted on criminal damage to property and entering-auto charges in Wilkinson County in 2007. Bryant, on his Facebook page, lists his employer as “Hustlin,” at which the page declares, “IM DA BOSS.”
