A trio of local residents stopped a masked robber and hog tied him until authorities got there.
Leon County Sheriff’s deputies say 16-year-old Kegan Ornelas walked into the Circle K on Thomasville Road wearing a bandana over his face just after 11:00 am on Wednesday, September 26, 2012.
Ornelas jumped over the counter, knife in hand, and demanded money from the store clerk.
Investigators say two witnesses – Kenneth Redding and Fabian Miller – met Ornelas at the door and subdued him. They say a third man, Richard Hartsfield, grabbed some rope out of his car.
The three men then tied the teenager up and waited for deputies to arrive.
LCSO says no one was hurt. Ornelas is charged with Robbery with a deadly weapon.
