Armed robbery suspect arrested after beauty store robbed at gunpoint


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – A man accused of robbing a local beauty store at gunpoint on Tuesday in Sylacauga is behind bars.

On Tuesday, officers from Sylacauga Police Department answered a call at Sally’s Beauty Supply after the store was robbed at gunpoint.  Officers arrived at the scene to find that a white male, armed with a handgun, entered the Sally’s Beauty Supply, in Payton Park, and robbed the male sales clerk while using a handgun.

SPD says the armed offender had the clerk bag up the money from the cash register and the offender left the store. No one was injured in the robbery.

With the help from the Talladega County Sheriff’s Department, the vehicle described by the clerk was located at a house on Cannon Ave. in Sylacauga.  Daniel Heath Crowder, 29, was taken into custody from the residence where the vehicle was located.  Crowder was later charged with Robbery 1st Degree.

Crowder is currently held in the Talladega County Jail and is awaiting an initial hearing where his bond will be set for the offense.
