SHANNON – A Friday night robbery attempt ended in a car accident, which landed the suspect in jail.
Gary Dale Presley, 26, of Plantersville, is charged with robbery and possession of a controlled substance following a robbery attempt at Zach’s Texaco in Shannon, said Shannon Police Officer Fred Washington.
Officers later discovered a vehicle that had crashed into a tree, and the vehicle matched the description of the one used in the robbery. A mask and other items believed used in the robbery were found in the vehicle, and Presley was arrested.
Presley was not seriously injured in the accident, Washington said.
Bond will be set Monday.
