Man arrested in JJ Chick and Fish robbery

Posted June 19, 2009

— Henderson police arrested a 19-year-old, already on probation for an earlier robbery, in the armed robbery of JJ's Chick and Fish restaurant late Thursday morning.

An employee told police that a man entered the restaurant, at 1202 E. Andrews Ave., and threatened him with a handgun. The man took an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register and fled behind the business, investigators said.

Police established a perimeter and brought in K-9 units and then got a tip that the robber had been seen jumping a fence near Tripp Street.

After a foot chase, officers arrested Daryl Williams, of Plum Lane. They recovered a handgun and cash.

Williams was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and carrying a concealed weapon.

According to state Department of Correction records, Williams was placed on probation May 21 for a common-law robbery in Vance County in January.

    Two armed roberies and he's only 19. This guy has no shot of making anything in life. He's probably a very close example of his entire immediate family and friends.

    That is a correct statement, with the almost free housing available it doesn't take a lot of cash to survive, I just don't understand how the government can provide housing to people who are driving 40k vehicles with 26 inch rims on it. Seems a might odd to me.

    This guy robbed Dollar General in January...was reduced to common law robbery,time served,and probation....what a joke...

    Probation is a joke. It's way too common for repeat offenders to end up back on the street to prey on the citizens. How about a tough stance on crime for a change? Do a crime...do some time. No probation. And when in jail, how about them doing back-breaking work everyday? To most of these guys, jail is just a free place to hang out with thier buddies.

    This suspect's probation needs to be violated immediately. I hope that this case goes through the federal system, if so he can actually get all of the prison time he deserves.

    Good to job to the police that caught him.
