Johnny Verdel Walker was arrested after a 10:45 a.m. attempted robbery of the location at 1631 Gordon High­way.

Employees told police the suspect ordered a pizza, then pulled his hands from his pants pocket, dropping a black handgun to the floor.

He then grabbed the gun and demanded cash.

He left empty-handed after the employee told him he was the first customer of the day and the register was empty.

Richmond Coun­ty sheriff’s Lt. Cal­vin Chew said deputies chased Walker after he was spotted walking in the 2500 block of Deans Bridge Road.

After Walker’s arrest, police linked him to a June 12 robbery at the Little Caesars store at 2492 Tobacco Road.

In that case, the suspect ordered a pizza before pulling out a pistol and demanding cash. He fled about 11:45 a.m. with money and the pizza.

Walker has been charged with criminal attempt, two counts of armed robbery and two counts of possession of a weapon during the commission of a crime.

No arrest picture?

I wanted to see what a low-life thief looks like. May he get all the pizza he wants in prison.

really a lot of very tan faces showing up as criminals. Wonder if it's the prevailing culture of the ethnicity?
