Robber leaves name at El Dorado store

Posted:

EL DORADO (AP) - An accused store robber in El Dorado offered police the convenience of leaving his name behind with the cashier after he held up the Day and Nite store and took some beer.

The Thanksgiving Day robbery ended with the suspect writing his name and a couple of phrases on a receipt and leaving it at the counter.

When the man approached the register, the clerk asked him to pay for his beer. The man then lifted his shirt to expose the handle of a pistol. When the receipt printed, he wrote on it and left the store.

The El Dorado News-Times reports police arrested 33-year-old Uganda T. Evans of El Dorado at the apartment complex where he lives. Police say he dropped an unloaded handgun when he saw officers approach.
