A Macon man didn’t get far before being arrested in connection with an attempted robbery at a Subway restaurant.
Oscar Eugene Pitts, 54, was arrested at a Neville Way residence shortly after he reportedly entered the restaurant, located at 1433 Eisenhower Parkway, and demanded money around 9:30 p.m. Monday, according to a news release.
The clerk ran and locked herself in a freezer, and the suspect left without any money. Bibb County sheriff’s deputies and investigators searched the area and found Pitts, who matched the clerk’s description, about a mile away from the restaurant. Pitts was charged with criminal attempt to commit a felony (armed robbery) and a probation violation, and he was taken to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center, where he remained without a bond.
