A man was chased down by restaurant patrons after allegedly trying to steal a register, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department said.
Deputies arrested Jei Terrell Robinson early Friday, after patrons at an Applebee’s Restaurant on Two Notch Road held him until deputies arrived, Richland County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Curtis Wilson said.
Moments before, a suspect came into the restaurant and unsuccessfully tried to take the cash register. He ran out after the botched attempt.
Robinson, 42, is charged with petit larceny, and is being held at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
