ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — A man who worked at a Chik-fil-A restaurant in northern South Carolina has been accused of robbing a KFC.

Fifty-year-old old Jeffrey Coley is accused of taking $516 from the KFC in Rock Hill, South Carolina, on Monday.

Police say Coley pulled a gun at the drive-thru at KFC and demanded cash. Coley was arrested Tuesday after a chase and police say the cash drawer was still in the vehicle.

He’s charged with armed robbery, possession of a gun during a violent crime, failure to stop for police and possession of methamphetamine. It was not clear if he has an attorney.

Chick-fil-A spokesman Mark Baldwin tells The Rock Hill Herald Coley was fired from a restaurant in Indian Land on June 18 when he failed to show up to work two days in a row.
