Taco Bell Crime of the Week!
A Charleston man charged with robbing the Patrick Street Taco Bell restaurant in January has pleaded guilty in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Brenya James Beverly, 23, told Judge Charles King that he approached manager Michael Hill from behind on Jan. 3 in an alley outside the restaurant and wrestled him to gain control. He then stole $4,300 from Hill, who was on his way to make a bank deposit.
Beverly had been an employee of the Taco Bell, said Assistant Prosecutor Rob Schulenberg.
"He told him that he had a firearm," Schulenberg said. "And the manager gave him the money."
Beverly said he did not actually have a gun.
