An attempted robbery at Pizza Hut around 10:20 Saturday night ended with a suspect in custody.

Hermon Teem52-year-old Herman Lee Teem of Noble allegedly held up a Pizza Hut waitress and manager at 10:22, taking $180 and then fleeing on foot. A witness saw a Mustang tear out of a parking lot nearby and notified PD. Teem was caught in that vehicle a few miles up North Main at El Trio.

The cash was found on Mr. Teem but the knife was not; he may have tossed it out the window somewhere between Pizza Hut and El Trio – so if you find one in the area, call 911 or LPD immediately.

Teem is thought to be the same individual who robbed the Kangaroo in Rock Spring twice during the previous week, also using a knife – so finding his blade might make solving those cases easier as well.   Tiny Facebook  Tiny Facebook

  1. Well that shows you right there that Mr. Whitfield has more money than he knows what to do with, (Putting signs in the graveyard Ha). He sure has spent a bundle on signs. WOW, I guess that impresses people here in Walker County.

  2. KKmore22 – Have you heard of FUND-RAISERS? Yes, the fundraiser that he had a while back, that PACKED the Walker County Civic Center, is where the money comes from to purchase these things….geez. Do you seriously think all of these candidates for political office pay for these campaign items out of their own bank accounts? (Trump excluded of course).

  3. Mike Peardon, as of the last campaign report we saw, had paid for every bit of his campaign out of pocket.

    Whitfield was paying for his via donations from some of the same people who used to pay for Bebe’s campaigns.

  4. LU that’s is probably the truth- but paying out of your pocket in my opinion is nothing to brag about. It shows that the support is in words only and no one is willing to invest in the candidate. Since he built a $350K home with a pond, I guess HE’s the one with the cash….

  5. Perry Lamb said in the candidate forum last month that he’s not asking for donations because the people he represents don’t have much to give. I like that position.

    Especially compared to others who want to represent those who are funding their campaigns so they can claim 100% support from empty lots all over the county.
