Suspect From Robbery At Zoomerz In Custody

A man who allegedly used a knife during a robbery Friday night at the Zoomerz Market at 13425 W. Andrew Johnson Hwy., near Exit 23 of Interstate 81, was taken into custody Monday.

Tyler Allen Pinkston, 20, of 336 Lawson Road, Bulls Gap, was charged with aggravated robbery, and also with theft over $1,000 in connection with an unrelated crime, sheriff's Detective Lt. James Randolph said in reports.

The store clerk told deputies a man entered the Zoomerz store at 10:42 a.m. Friday, and approached the counter. The report states that "he told her to give him all the money."

The man then "jumped the counter and told her to open the cash register and give him the money or he would cut her," the report said.

Pinkston's arrest report said he committed the offense by going to the convenience store "and displaying a hunting knife to the cashier and taking money from the cash register."

The report said that the robber made the cashier lie down on the floor. There were no injuries.

A separate report by Randolph said that on July 21, Pinkston went to the Greeneville Walmart and stole "numerous games" valued at $2,035.

Bond for Pinkston was set at $55,000. He was scheduled to appear Wednesday in General Sessions Court.
