A St. Albans man is behind bars accused of trying to rob two businesses on Charleston's East End.
According to court documents, Kerry Smith went into the Family Dollar Friday, shoved a cashier and tried to forcibly take money from an open cash register. That's when police say the cashier and a customer got into a brief struggle with Smith trying to keep him from taking the money.
Police also say Smith walked into the Sweet Spoon on Washington Street East Friday and told the cashier to open the register and give him money. We are told the cashier ran to the back of the store to get away from him and Smith left.
Smith is charged with second degree robbery and is currently in the South Central Regional Jail on a $1,000 bond.
