Former Employee Charged In Night Deposit Robberies

A former employee is accused of twice robbing restaurant workers at gunpoint as they tried to make night deposits.

Jeremy Jefferson is charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon after his arrest Wednesday morning.

Goldsboro police say the two robberies involved night deposits from two different Andy's Steakhouse locations. The first one happened on April 4th when an employee said he was leaving the restaurant on Highway 111 South when he was attacked by a gunman who placed him in a choke hold and pointed the weapon at his head.

The next one happened late Tuesday night at the New Century Bank on Spence Avenue. Two employees were at the deposit drop box when a gunman came out from behind the bushes and demanded the deposit bag. Despite having on a black ski mask, the two victims were able to identify the gunman as Jefferson, who used to work at their Wayne Memorial Drive location.

The 21-year-old Mount Olive man was arrested by Wayne County deputies at his home, where they also recovered evidence from both robberies.

Jefferson's bond was set at $150,000.

    I wouldn't assume that he's robbed other places...I mean that's a pretty big accusation. Would you like it if people were up here talking about how bad of a person you are?!

    I guess he will learn from his decsions now..... While in jail!!!

    Yes we all make bad decisions from time to time. MOST of the time we learn from the first bad decision but when you do it multiple times (oh and with a gun) that doesn't make you a good person. You did it again cause you thought you got away with it. Guess what you didn't!!!! I would also be willing to bet that he has stolen many more times then just these two.

    It doesn't matter if it was a BB Gun or a 45 - the law and the punishment is the same. Unfortunately, Jeremy made a life altering decision and I now pray that he turns his life down a better path and return to the Jeremy that I use to know -- one that doesn't use drugs or drink

    I must say that I still love Jeremy, regardless of what he has done; and I still think he is a good kid. He made bad decisions; and he will be punished accordingly. His punishment will not be doled out by me, his family, nor any of you; he will receive his sentence in a court of law. Jeremy knows what he did was wrong, so we should be lifting him up not tearing him down more. I will be praying for him, his family, his fiancee, and the victims.
