STATESVILLE, N.C. - Police have charged an 83-year-old greeter at a North Carolina Walmart with trying to rob the store over the weekend.
Police say George Plane Jr. of Mooresville was working Sunday night when he went to his car, donned a disguise and walked back inside the Statesville store with a gun.
Statesville Police Chief Tom Anderson says Plane put the gun to a fellow employee's head and demanded money from a cash register.
Anderson says Plane fired a shot in the air after leaving with the money.
Plane was arrested later Sunday.
He was being held Monday on multiple charges, including robbery with a dangerous weapon.
It could not be immediately determined Monday if he has a lawyer.
