Floyd Neeley, 42, was charged Sunday with second-degree robbery.
A Dollar General clerk said two men took two chairs and loaded them into the back of a pickup truck. When the store manager approached them, one of the men pulled a fixed-blade knife from a sheath on his belt and displayed it, according to the Berea police report.
The manager went back inside the Prince Royal Drive store and saw the man with the knife come in. He concealed a shirt under his clothing and carried a second shirt in his hand, the report stated.
The man continued to display the knife the entire time he was in the store and left without paying for any of the merchandise, the manager told police.
The merchandise is valued at $50.
After investing, police obtained an arrest warrant for Neeley. He was arrested Sunday and lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
The identity of the second man is unknown, according to the BPD report.
