Accompanied by his minister, a man went to the Brownwood Police Department Thursday morning and confessed to grabbing money from a convenience store’s cash register, police said.
Assistant Police Chief Garry Page, commenting a few minutes after the man confessed, did not release his name pending the filing of a charge.
A man entered the Wes-T-Go store at 1400 Coggin around 8 p.m. Wednesday, police said. The man gave the clerk some change and asked for a dollar bill, and when the clerk opened the register, the man reached over the counter, grabbed $330 and fled.
Page said the man talked to his minister, and his minister brought him to the police department.
