A Chattanooga man accused of robbing two Subways was arrested in a Wendy's restroom last Wednesday. Bossie Hale Jr., 24, is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery.

Police said the first robbery occurred at the Subway on Amnicola Highway. Rhonda and Kevin Keaton were inside the restaurant when a man wearing a black hoodie and a red bandana over his face walked in carrying a semi-automatic handgun. He walked up to the register and demanded money, stealing $171.

The second robbery happened at the Subway on Highway 58 approximately an hour and a half later. The business estimated that $241 was stolen. Video surveillance showed a man wearing the exact same clothing from the first robbery. 

Hale claims that he was not involved in the incident on Amnicola Highway.

As the robber was leaving the Highway 58 Subway, a witness saw him head into a nearby Wendy's.  The witness immediately flagged down a police officer. When the officer went in, Hale came out with his hands up. The money taken in the robberies was found in a trashcan in the bathroom. Also,  police said he had hidden the hoodie, the bandana, and the gun in the ceiling tiles above the bathroom stall.

Hale was taken into police custody and bail was set at $75,000.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: My Pre-Fourth Observations

I hate to do this, right on the heels of my monthly ‘Walk in the Garden,’ but I have more things on my desk that I dare not leave unnoticed before tomorrow’s Star-Spangled celebration. Foremost is the plea to anyone who shoots off firecrackers to please wear eye protection and ask watchers to stand back. Our eye doctors say firecracker-related injuries have doubled in the last three ... (click for more)
