Police in Alabama arrested a fast-food employee after he tried to rob the restaurant when his shift ended. Zackary Dexter Pace was charged with first-degree robbery on July 27 at a Jack’s fast food restaurant on Pinson Valley Parkway.

The 24 year-old held-up his coworkers at gunpoint while wearing a disguise. His coworkers thought he was playing a practical joke.

‘Never been robbed before so it was shocking,’ Lawanda Phillips, general manager told the station WBRC.  

Phillips said that Pace called her asking for a job several times. When she agreed to hire him in early July, he took advantage of his new place of employment.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy, Randy Christian, said that Pace did not make a good criminal because he did not execute his crime well.

His disguise was so poor.

According to law enforcement officials, Pace returned to the restaurant only minutes after finishing his shift on Friday with a plain black mask that revealed his eyes. Pace did not try to alter his voice.

‘Just about every employee in there called him by name and thought he was joking around,’ Christian said.

‘I was like, “is this a joke, is he playing or something,”’ Coworker Yaneth Ardon said.

When I heard him talk and I was like, ”that is him”, but then I saw him with a gun and I was like, ‘why is he doing this?’

Deputies said Pace leapt over the counter, grabbed a handful of money, and fled the scene.

On Monday, when Pace returned to the restaurant to check up on his employees, he was arrested.

‘Ironically, yesterday, when our detectives were at the store interviewing the witnesses, he showed up just to see how everyone was doing and we arrested him so obviously, not the smartest man in the world,’ Christian said.
