June 03--A Washington, N.C. resident pulled up to the 4816 Ward Blvd. McDonald's drive-thru and ordered a soft drink. But when he approached the takeout window, the man demanded fast-food workers give him money.

The attempted robbery Thursday through the drive-thru window didn't yield any dividends for Jason Scott Chrismon, 127 Abby Lane, Washington.

"He didn't get anything except arrested," said Wilson Police Capt. Tad Shelton.

Chrismon attempted largely the same sequence of events at a Farmville McDonald's a little earlier that day with similar results, officials said. In that attempted robbery, he reportedly paid for the meal and claimed to have a gun.

"He scared the employee and it spooked him (Chrismon) off," Shelton said of the Wilson incident.

Police officers responded to the Wilson incident at approximately 6:14 p.m. on Thursday to a reported attempted robbery.

Detectives followed up on leads and developed Chrismon, 39, as a suspect, according to Shelton.

Chrismon was subsequently arrested, charged with attempted armed robbery and placed in the Wilson County Jail under a $5,000 bond.

He has a pending charge of attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon in the Pitt County case.

Police said no weapon was located on Chrismon.
