An Alabama man has been arrested in connection with an attempted robbery at the Dollar General in Coosa that occurred back on May 6.

According to the arrest warrant, 38-year-old Jason Dewayne Dean walked into the store on Alabama Highway and demanded all the money from the cash register.

The clerk believed that Dean had a gun around his waist.

Dean had previously been charged with an attempted robbery at the Country Store in Cedar Bluff, Alabama on the same day.

According to that report, he selected a drink from the cooler, waited until everyone left the store, and then demanded money when the cashier opened the drawer.

However, she refused and Dean left empty-handed.
