BREAKING: One in Custody after Arby’s Restaurant Robbery Attempt

UPDATE: 12/15/2015, 10:44 A.M. – Officials have released the full details in Monday’s “robbery” attempt. According to reports, 26-year-old Shawn Eugene Canon of Lando O’ Lakes, approached the register and ordered and ordered a large drink. He then handed the employee a $50.00 bill. The employee became suspicious of the bill and turned away from the open cash register to take a closer look. While the employee wasn’t looking, Canon reached over and grabbed a handful of cash and then ran out of the store. Canon was captured a short distance away and a total of $16.00 was recovered. The fifty dollar bill was determined to be counterfeit. 

During an interview, Canon admitted to the theft; explaining that someone handed him three counterfeit $50 bills so that he could buy small items with each to get the remaining change. The entire incident was captured on video surveillance, confirming the chain of events. 

Canon is charged with Retail Theft and Uttering a Forged Instrument. He remains behind bars at the Hernando County Jail, held on a $1,500 bond. 

UPDATE: 12/14/2015, 9:03 P.M. – There are now conflicting reports regarding tonight’s alleged robbery attempt. Around 8:30 p.m., authorities confirmed that the incident was classified as a commercial robbery; however, after reviewing video surveillance from inside the restaurant, officials withdrew the robbery classification and may not provide an update until sometime tomorrow.
We will continue to bring more on this story as it develops.

BROOKSVILLE – Information is still sketchy at this time but according to our sources a man walked into the Arby’s Restaurant on Cortez Blvd and committed a robbery. At this time there are no reports that the suspect used a weapon; however, that has not been confirmed. It is also not known if the suspect robbed an individual or the business.

A K-9 unit arrived on the scene and began tracking in the area of the new Wawa Convenience Store across the street from the Arby’s Restaurant. Within minutes, the suspect was captured near the front entrance of the CVS Pharmacy adjacent to the Wawa.

There are unconfirmed reports that the suspect has been positively identified and has confessed to the crime.

There are no reports of injuries at this time.

  • Hey family , I actually was raised and loved by very good psrents, of which my father served his country in war time! He fought for your right to get on here and call me an idiot, I have probably seen more and done more good in my lifetime than you would ever do. Educated with lots of common sense, since you were there when it happened I am glad you didn’t choke on your sandwich, or pee your pants in fear, you are a typical uncaring person and probably never did anything good for anyone in your life! Again I will post whatever I want (with Tom’s ok) and you Internet bully can kiss my white butt! Nothing more to say to you, you silly person are irrelevant to me! Merry Christmas to you and yours, if there is any yours!!! Can you feel the love????lmbo Are we having fun yet???

  • @ jana rae no you idiot i was there when it alll happened, your a real ignorant person arent you. Remember what people who ASSUME are. ☺ you just post real dumb comments on every story, should probably keep them to yourself lol . I wonder your background and upbringing.

  • These things keep happening a little too close to “home” a man 2 houses down had his truck stolen 10 foot from his front door. I’m not sayin we should just start shootin people BUT you know, when wrongful doers were hung and told to stand in line, there were less of these problems. If a woman’s son did such a thing she would expect nothin less than him to stand in line at the gallows. TODAY, there’s high priced lawyers to defend your guilty ass and your free to go rob the next guy, or smoke meth at the next shack, or rape another woman walking home from work. Thank you to the Sheriffs department, for caging criminals and giving them time to think about what house there gonna rob next. If you really wanna clean this place up, find a tall oak tree, round up all of them bad boys an hang em high in the streets. America, I love you, but you really need some help. Nut up Shut up and quit bein stupid, STUPID.
